Business Objects is launching version 4.1 of its desktop query and reporting tools at the IT Forum in New York next week. The upgrade includes agents to check pre-set business rules to notify users if changes occur in the data they are searching and Web enhancements so customers can navigate reports using a Web browser.
New modules include Reader, which costs $195 per PC and enables users to read reports, and Driller, which costs $350 per PC and enables customers to drill down into data into pre-written reports. The product, which will ship later this month, can also be used to access and analyse data stored in Arbor's Essbase and Oracle's Express Server multidimensional database and combine it with data from other sources.
