SAP have BO....!

Oooooh, the smell..!

I couldn't resist the almost register like title for the post....

It appears after many many months of hearsay and conjecture someone is finally going to stump up the cash and buy Business Objects. There's been a lot of talk around this area especially with Hyperion being absorbed by Oracle and further rumors about the future of Cognos.

Microsoft seem to be content with buying the smaller players and partnering with the similar smaller vendors to compliment their own technologies and now they've gone their own route for budgeting and planning it seems very unlikely they will do anything else but carry on that trend.

It will be interesting to see what effect this has, if any, on the close ties that SAP and Microsoft have had recently. We shall see.
