However, Business Objects disproves the notion that business intelligence is strictly the domain of power users.

France Telecom, one of the principal telecommunications operators in the world, has 70,000 users of BusinessObjects. The U.S. Military Health System (MHS), the 125,000-person healthcare organization for the U.S. Department of Defense, has 50,000. Business Objects has many other customers in the 20,000 range. Thousands of successful businesses benefit from Business Objects business intelligence (BI) solutions.
