    Hi Vegas,

    The Webintelligence Rich Client (WRC) has all the features of the thin webintelligence client. But WRC makes use of the client processor and memory to do all post query processing while Infoview Webi sends every request to the server for processing.

    Thus you won't find any difference between the time taken to retrieve data from the database between these two clients. But there would be huge difference in performance while doing further analysis, formatting with the data. Also you will not need connectivity to the network to do analysis and formatting using the WRC client.

    WRC client will help you to just retrieve the data on the fly and let you play around with it while you are traveling with no network connectivity.

    Thanks

      Hi

      How does the query processing work in the offline mode? Does the WRC cache database information on the local machine or alternatively how does the WRC connect to the data source in the offline mode?

      Thanks!

    Hi,

    Both are used for viewing/modifying WebI reports but Web Intelligence is thin client [ using url we login to WebI by giving credentials] where as web Intelligence Rich client is a Thick client similar to DeskI used for viewing/modifying WebI reports.

    Thanks & Regards,

    functionally they should be very close but webi requires login to BO via web/app and WRC can be launched on any client machine (along with the ability to save .wid files locally)

    Regards,

      In WRC report can be created off peronal data provider like excel worksheet. And I think in Web Intelligence it is not possible.
