Business Objects, a provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions, announced the launch of BusinessObjects Polestar, a solution intended to bring together the simplicity and speed of search with the trust and analytical power of business intelligence in order to provide immediate answers. BusinessObjects Polestar users will be able to enter a few search keywords to find the most relevant information instantly from across all of their applications and data sources--with no previous reports or metrics required. Like internet search, Polestar will index the data stored in organizational sources for user search and exploration. Information workers are meant to benefit from this self-service discovery without needing to understand the data, where it is located, or how it is structured. BusinessObjects Polestar general availability is expected in December 2007.
