SAN JOSE, Calif. and PARIS -- Business Objects (Nasdaq:BOBJ)(Euronext Paris ISIN code: FR0004026250 BOB), the worlds leading provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions, today announced its advanced new enterprise performance management (EPM) roadmap in the wake of the completion of its Cartesis acquisition. The company closed the Cartesis acquisition in June.
Business Objects EPM applications will now be fully integrated onto the BusinessObjects XI platform, and built around the Integrated Data Model (IDM) as the cornerstone for Enterprise Performance Management. Integrating the suite of products onto the IDM provides a complete closed-loop solution which allows managers to better control their business and optimize its performance. The IDM links all finance, compliance and performance management processes and data in a single solution, reducing overall management cycle times, the costs associated with compliance, and drives greater accuracy into the financial reporting and planning process.
Additionally, the integration will provide end users in finance and throughout an organization with the ability to leverage every aspect of the Business Objects suite of products, including the companys industry leading enterprise information management (EIM) and business intelligence capabilities, all from a single integrated platform.
By issuing this product roadmap today, Business Objects has positioned itself to be a clear leader in the EPM space, said Mark Doll, senior vice president of enterprise performance management and global services for Business Objects. This is an exciting and ambitious roadmap which leverages both the combined technologies and unrivaled domain expertise of Business Objects and Cartesis to deliver a truly unique value proposition to our customers. The vision we are creating and our ability to deliver on this sets Business Objects apart.
