Information Builders is set to deploy a software-as-a-service business intelligence platform for the U.K. public sector in cooperation with Amtex Solutions Ltd.
“Information Builders formed our partnership with Amtex Solutions with a clear focus in mind to deliver on the expectations of the public sector for business analytics,” said Peter Walker, U.K. and Ireland country manager for Information Builders UK Ltd.
The product, WebFOCUS Cloud Express, is designed to provide a low-cost advanced BI and analytics solution for government enterprises by using web-based access, wizard-style interfaces and user-friendly tools for developers.
The data integration toolset also offers data enterprise reporting, data discovery and data visualization based on Microsoft’s SQL Server 2012.
Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders, said the express version of their flagship product can now be accessed via the government’s G-Cloud program.
Among the U.K. public offices using the WebFOCUS platform are Greater Manchester Police, Debt Management Office and the Northern Ireland Civil Service.
