Best of Summit 2012 WebFOCUS Presentation


Are you tired of watching re-runs of Everybody Loves Raymond? Maybe you see re-runs as a waste of your time.


Here are some "oldies but goodies" you want to catch: the re-presentation of Information Builders' best sessions from their annual users conference Summit 2012 in Orlando.

Later this week on Thursday, July 12th, at 2PM Eastern, Walter Blood will re-share "More Hidden Gems in the World of Reporting." A graduate of Harvard, Walter has been with Information Builders for as long as I can remember. 

Here is Walter's agenda summary: 

More Hidden Gems in the World of Reporting
Presented by Walter Blood, Information Builders
Thursday, July 12, 2012 @ 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time
(1:00 - 2:30 p.m. Central Time; 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. Mountain Time; 
11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Pacific Time) 

WebFOCUS is a very deep product, with powerful functionality that is sometimes hidden. This session will uncover some hidden gems in the areas of selecting data, building powerful expressions, and producing unique outputs. What is the value of making your data selection part of your connection? What can analytical functions give you? If the structure of your data is important, how can you retain it in the output? These and other questions will be explored in detail.
