San Jose, Calif., Nov. 13, 2000 – Business Objects, a provider of e-business intelligence (e-BI) solutions, announced the general availability of BusinessObjects BW Connect, a new interface to SAP BW data.

SAP has certified BusinessObjects BW Connect for enterprise query, reporting and analysis against SAP Business Information Warehouse (BW) version 2.0. This certification was conducted at SAP's headquarter laboratories in Walldorf, Germany and involved testing using SAP-defined processes and controls. Customers using SAP will now be able to use BusinessObjects BW Connect, a new, SAP-certified tool to access valuable SAP data, create and analyze reports on this data, and share these reports with other users throughout the enterprise. BusinessObjects BW Connect enables users to access SAP BW data and combine it with other corporate information, publish reports to the Web and integrate with the full Business Objects e-business intelligence suite.

BusinessObjects BW Connect is based on the integration of technology from OLAP@Work, the Canadian-based company acquired by Business Objects in April 2000, with the Business Objects product line. The product is generally available. For more information, please visit
