Enterprise Reporting Test

Every piece of software looks great at the demo.  And every software salesman assures you that just like the Vegomatic their software can do it all.  If you believe that you may wind up buying the software equivalent of swampland.

To make sure that the Enterprise Reporting Solution you are considering can actually deliver industrial strength information to your organization, follow this simple series of tests. If the software you are evaluating can handle these, than you might have a keeper.  If not, than I would suggest that you keep looking.  The rules are simple. In case you haven't guessed WebFOCUS™ has no problem passing these tests and more.

With that settled let's get started.  First the data for the test.
