Business Objects and Red Hat Sign Global Alliance Agreement

Originally published November 29, 2005

Business Objects and Red Hat recently announced the signing of a new global alliance agreement. As part of the agreement, each company will join the other's technology partner program and the two companies will embark on several co-marketing and co-selling programs to help customers derive the benefit from the use of business intelligence on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform.

Business Objects and Red Hat have seen an increase in customer demand for enterprise applications that support Linux. The Linux operating system has the capability to support mission-critical applications such as business intelligence. It offers companies a way to lower their total cost of ownership, in an easy-to-use environment, while maintaining a high level of security and performance. Earlier this year, Business Objects launched BusinessObjects XI, its industry-leading BI platform, as well as Crystal Reports Server and BusinessObjects Data Integrator on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Business Objects and Red Hat have worked closely to optimize the performance of Business Objects solutions on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system. Deploying Business Objects on Red Hat, customers can distribute information to a broad audience in a secure and robust manner, while reducing the amount of time and effort spent on system administration, training, and data integration.
