Robust Solution Empowers Siebel Customers
to Deliver Real-Time Business Information Throughout the Extended Enterprise

London, UK – April 17, 2003 – Information Builders, the leader in enterprise business intelligence (BI) and real-time Web reporting, today announced the immediate availability of WebFOCUS for Siebel, a powerful solution that empowers users of Siebel applications – such as CRM, sales, marketing, and employee relationship management – to meet their wide-scale demands for mission-critical information. With WebFOCUS for Siebel, users can integrate information from Siebel systems, as well as over 85 other sources and make it available to anyone, anywhere, at any time.

“Our solutions make it easy for users to transform Siebel and other enterprise data into relevant, consistent information, and deliver it to employees, partners, customers, and other key decision makers,” said Jim Irving, managing director of Information Builders UK. “WebFOCUS adds significant value to Siebel systems by making vital and timely enterprise information available to an unlimited number of users throughout the extended enterprise.”

WebFOCUS for Siebel provides all the robust functionality of WebFOCUS business intelligence solutions, but is designed to work seamlessly within the Siebel environment. Users can rapidly create virtually any type of report – including complex reports, ad hoc queries, and OLAP-style analysis – without utilising Siebel Tools or creating new Siebel configuration files. And because reports can be built using application field names, non-technical business professionals can easily satisfy their own real-time information needs.

Other features include:

• Full support for predefined Siebel views, business objects, and business components, as well as all precalculated fields, to significantly accelerate the report development process
• Full integration with Siebel security, including user authentication and visibility controls to protect sensitive information by allowing users to only run reports associated with their current Siebel view
• Dynamic conversion of Siebel business components into metadata, and tight integration with the Siebel metadata repository
