Business Objects, a provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions, announced the availability of BusinessObjects Knowledge Accelerator, a new Web-based learning solution for Business Objects products. BusinessObjects Knowledge Accelerator is designed to help individuals learn and apply business intelligence to their day-to-day activities. The learning environment provided by Knowledge Accelerator helps enable individuals to use business intelligence to make faster decisions and improve response to critical business issues, ultimately contributing to the overall performance of their organization.

As the size of business intelligence deployments continue to grow, the need for low-cost, on demand, customized learning solutions has increased. BusinessObjects Knowledge Accelerator provides end users with relevant tutorials and reference materials to provide self-service training and support of Business Objects products – when they want, at their desks and at a pace that best suits them. This leads to increased user knowledge of and productivity with Business Objects solutions.

BusinessObjects Knowledge Accelerator is divided into tutorials and reference materials based on different learning objectives, business processes, and tasks. This allows end users to focus on the products, features, and concepts that are relevant to them. Knowledge Accelerator can also be customized with the customer's data, the look and feel of the customer's deployment, or with specific workflows. For example, if a sales executive wants to perform three specific functions, BusinessObjects Knowledge Accelerator will walk that individual through those steps and demonstrate best practices. It also shows how specific product features work, let users perform the action, and test users on their abilities.

"BusinessObjects Knowledge Accelerator provides a cost-effective way for companies to build end-user understanding and acceptance of their Business Objects solution, an important step in any BI implementation," noted Eric Rogge, vice president and research director for business intelligence and analytics at Ventana Research, a leading research and advisory services firm. "The ability to customize Knowledge Accelerator with the customer's data and workflow will enable companies to more easily train users and find ways to better use their BI solution. It is clear that Business Objects has put a high priority on supporting customers throughout the lifecycle of their products and ensuring they are successful with their BI implementation."
