Databeacon Inc., a developer of Web reporting and data analysis software, has announced the US availability of Databeacon Collaboration Edition. This release gives organizations the ability to publish and disseminate live Web reports and data analysis to a large number of information consumers over corporate extranets or the Internet. Databeacon Collaboration Edition offers anyone with a browser and an Internet connection the ability to collaborate on Web reports without the need to install software or take training.

They are then able to add their own Web reports to share within the workgroup as needed.
