What Is WebFOCUS?
  • A business intelligence software tool that accesses data from the MIS and organizes it in a way that is meaningful to a variety of users – from frontline staff to administrators to State and local policymakers
  • More specific information at: http://www.informationbuilders.com/

An idealist believes the short run doesn't count. A cynic believes the long run doesn't matter. A realist believes that what is done or left undone in the short run determines the long run.
