TIBCO FOCUS is a complete information control system with comprehensive features for entering, maintaining, retrieving, and analyzing data. It is designed for use both by users with no formal training in data processing and by data processing professionals who need powerful tools for developing complete applications.

The non-procedural FOCUS language is designed to replace traditional programming languages in most application programming situations. The simplicity of the command syntax in the language stems from the fact that it uses simple English phrases that enable most new users to start producing meaningful reports immediately.
