Petro-Canada deploys WebFocus BI platform

In-house developed Enterprise Reporting System embeds Information Builders’ business intelligence.

Petro-Canada is to deploy Information Builders’ WebFocus business intelligence platform following a review of competing products. Petro-Canada’s requirement was for a standard reporting tool for its domestic and international operations—pulling data from multiple systems to provide a corporate ‘big picture’. Petro-Canada developed Enterprise Reporting System (ERS), which embeds WebFocus, which provides consolidated financial reporting and analysis of operating data with both predefined and ad hoc reports.


Information Builders CEO Gerald Cohen said, ‘The detail provided by this type of WebFocus application has enabled financial managers to gain visibility into profitability and to make informed decisions on operational matters - ultimately leading to reduced costs and lowered business risk. The key to analyzing volumes of corporate data is turning it into meaningful reports.’
