Business Objects, a leading provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions, announced an extended OEM agreement with Borland Software Corporation, a global leader in platform independent solutions for software delivery optimization. With this agreement, Crystal Reports is now embedded in Borland Delphi 2005, the newest version of Borland's RAD environment for Microsoft Windows and .NET applications. Developers using Delphi 2005 can easily build enterprise reports from within their familiar development environment using the Delphi and C# programming languages.

"Borland is a leading software manufacturer for .NET and Java development environments, and extending our .NET product offerings with the integration of Crystal Reports in Delphi 2005 will provide a significant benefit to developers," said Lance Walter, vice president of product marketing at Business Objects. "Borland and Business Objects are jointly delivering industry standard embedded reporting technology for application developers across all development languages, deployment platforms and database architectures."

This agreement extends the long-standing relationship between Business Objects and Borland. Crystal Reports is integrated in several Borland developer products including JBuilder(R) X, JBuilder 2005, and now Delphi 2005. Developers worldwide have made Crystal Reports the defacto standard in both enterprise and embedded reporting because it reduces the time spent developing reports compared with hand coding and enables them to quickly create and integrate interactive, presentation-quality reports from within their preferred IDE.
