Providers Intro BI Solution

CHICAGO -- Business Objects (Nasdaq:BOBJ)(Euronext Paris ISIN code: FR0004026250 - BOB), the worlds leading provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions, and Netezza Corporation, a leading provider of data warehouse appliances, today announced the availability of an integrated mid-market BI solution. This BI appliance combines Business Objects Crystal Decisions®, the new mid-market BI platform from Business Objects, and Netezza’s smaller data warehouse appliance in one product. The integrated solution delivers a complete BI and data warehouse solution with ease-of-deployment and lower price point characteristics that are appealing to mid-sized companies.

The combination of the high-performance Netezza Performance Server® (NPS®) system and the Business Objects business intelligence platform results in a powerful BI foundation that delivers the full spectrum of BI capabilities while minimizing data management and administrative complexity. The integrated solution, which is available in one and three terabyte configurations, enables customers to match the BI capabilities of high-performance, enterprise-class organizations with just a fraction of the resources. This solution is architected to enable rapid deployment and deliver compelling query performance against large amounts of detailed data at a lower cost of ownership.

Initially, this solution will be offered through select third-party system integration and solution provider partners who are working closely with both companies today. These channel partners can also provide implementation and other value added services to customers as appropriate.

“We are very excited about this offering,” said John Morrissey, managing director at Data Management Group, a Business Objects Platinum Partner. “Historically, mid-market companies in data-intensive industries have struggled because of the significant amount of expertise and resources required to maintain and administer high-performance BI environments. This solution challenges traditional assumptions of what can be achieved within mid-market budgets, and we see tremendous potential in this.”
