Business Objects, a provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions, announced the Business Objects Open Appliance Initiative (OAI). This new global partner network is designed to offer customers an array of BI appliances that provide innovative and streamlined ways to deploy integrated BI and data warehousing solutions. With this initiative, customers will have the flexibility to choose the right mix of data warehouse and business intelligence technology to meet their specific business needs and maximize the value of their corporate data.

Companies are struggling with a growing number of disparate data sources and expanding data volumes. Business Objects recognizes that many organizations do not have the resources to maintain and manage components of data warehousing and BI applications internally. BI appliances offer these companies a combination of hardware and software, or just software, packaged together to provide a complete, simple and affordable solution to gathering and analyzing data. BI appliances deliver a pre-installed and pre-configured application that reduces installation, configuration and deployment time to lower the total costs associated with running multiple, disparate software solutions independently.
