[SOLVED] Sandbox/Demo Environment?
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

As I am totally new to the WebFOCUS product suite, I was suggested to go through a formal training programme. However, we still are using a different BI technology and a change may happen in the new year when formal WebFOCUS trainings may be scheduled, I would like to keep myself ahead of the game, if possible.

Are there any pre-built sandbox / demo application environments? Or any other sources of information from IT perspective (books/blogs, etc.)? Lots of demos seem to be from end user perspective. I would like to 'see' a start to finish demo based on a star schema to begin with.

Kind regards,

Manoj.

I am not aware of a cloud sandbox but you might talk to your technical account manager to see if one can be set up for your company. In the mean time here is a link to some video's that show a lot of WF functionality including using App Studio. https://webfocusinfocenter.inf.../wfappent/video.html


Thank you for using Focal Point!

I always thought Grzegorz Swietlik and Doug Lautzenheiser did excellent jobs with their 'What is WebFOCUS?'/'Why I Choose WebFOCUS.' articles.
