Business Objects claims the latest version of its software suite is the first and only business intelligence (BI) platform that allows the thoughts and opinions of customers and other people found in unstructured sources such as the Web, notes fields, and emails to be easily incorporated into corporate decision making processes.
Business Objects calls this capability integrated text analysis, and says it ensures that all people within an organization can get the exact information they need—at any given time—to make the most informed decisions possible.
In a news release announcing its new BI platform—dubbed BusinessObjects XI 3.0—the company said BI solutions traditionally have focused the most easily obtainable data: process-centric 'structured' information—numbers and text stored in internal databases—analyzed by a select group of data analysts and shared among slices of isolated user communities.
With BusinessObjects XI 3.0, the release said, all information will be accessible to people throughout the organization and their extended business network. According to a recent survey of 154 global C-level executives conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and commissioned by Business Objects, less than one in 10 corporate executives believe they have the right information needed to make critical business decisions. BusinessObjects XI 3.0 gives businesspeople the confidence to know their data is clean, and the ability to link it back to its source, so information is easily auditable, accurate, and trustworthy.
"I expect that BusinessObjects XI 3.0 will bring new insights and improved decision making to our organization," said Yvonne Jones, manager of data management at Unisys , a leading global IT services and technology company. "Our employees should now always be connected to powerful BI capabilities wherever and whenever they need them."
