Business Objects, a world-leading provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions, announced the availability of Information OnDemand, the only online store where companies can access easy-to-analyze external market information with the click of a button enabling them to see the true picture of their organization's performance. Information OnDemand from Business Objects allows companies to gain a view beyond their internal data and quickly perform market research, sales planning, financial and competitive analysis, and industry benchmarking, using the market's leading business intelligence solutions.

In addition to the opening of the online store, Business Objects is also announcing the availability of eBay market data. Through a new partnership with Data Unison, master distributor of eBay market data, the store will now provide access to eBay data, the world's largest e-commerce data set. Powerful information such as sales and market numbers for top-selling brands, geographic and demographic data for purchases will be delivered prepackaged and ready for analysis. For example, a retailer in the Bay Area could access the eBay sales patterns of the Nintendo Wii by state, from May to June, to instantly understand where market demand is high, or supply may be running low, in order to create a marketing promotion for that region or to analyze price sensitivity to new product releases.
