BI projects use Skybox to eliminates additional app tests

Business intelligence applications can move to production quicker.

By Claire Vanner

New cloud hosting service Skybox is helping companies to test and develop applications for Business Intelligence projects without spending time and resources creating an application test and development infrastructure.

The new service from Information Builders helps organisations transform data into business value by using the WebFOCUS functionality to begin immediately developing and testing their BI applications, and moving them to production, much faster without a large IT infrastructure investment.

Skybox’s access to WebFOCUS is designed to help organisations gain competitive advantage by empowering more people with the right information at the right time while providing self-service capabilities for all user groups.

"Given the pressure on business leaders to achieve greater results without increasing IT department budgets, a managed cloud environment with the complete WebFOCUS platform is an ideal solution for businesses seeking flexibility in their BI deployments," said Gerald Cohen, CEO of Information Builders.

Using Skybox also accelerates time-to-market for BI projects by using Skybox for testing existing runtime environments and applications, without the need to create and manage a new development infrastructure. Businesses can convert short-term testing to longer-term managed hosting or move the cloud-hosted environment on-premise.

"Skybox is a unique managed service offering that brings businesses the most innovative, highest performing BI solution available in a cost-effective, agile and fully supported cloud environment, said Cohen."
