Introducing WebFOCUS and Developer Studio


WebFOCUS is a complete, web-ready data access and reporting system that connects users to data. WebFOCUS accesses and processes information located in any format on any platform and presents that information to users through a web browser in various output formats, such as HTML, PDF, Excel, or PostScript.

WebFOCUS Developer Studio is a Windows-based development environment for creating WebFOCUS applications. Developer Studio provides intuitive GUI tools that free developers from the hassles of coding, thereby allowing them to concentrate on interface design, business logic, and data manipulation. Using Developer Studio, developers can build powerful webpage interfaces that allow users to create and view reports.

Data access, network communications, and server operations are provided through WebFOCUS technology. WebFOCUS technology accesses data without concern for the complexities and incompatibilities of different operating systems, data sources, file systems, file formats, and networks. You can access both local and remote data on any platform from more than 300 distinct databases, including FOCUS, Microsoft® SQL Server, Sybase, Oracle, Informix, Ingres, and DB2.
