Business Objects to host 10th Annual International User Conference

Best-Selling Author and Yahoo! Leadership Coach to Deliver Keynote Address

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 23, 2004--Business Objects, the world's leading provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions, today announced its 10th annual International User Conference will be held November 7-10, 2004, at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas. For detailed information on the conference program and registration, please visit

This year's conference theme, "BI without Boundaries," will address how organizations can use business intelligence to improve operational performance and generate an even greater return on their business intelligence investments. Attendees will also have the chance to attend more than 90 technical track sessions and test drive BusinessObjects(TM) 6.5, the newest suite of integrated business intelligence products from Business Objects.

"The theme for this year's User Conference, 'BI without Boundaries,' is very timely because it ultimately means giving you, the individual, the information you need to do your job effectively -- in other words -- no boundaries," said Bernard Liautaud, CEO of Business Objects. "Business intelligence ensures that everyone is working with the same trusted information so that data can be confidently shared both inside and outside of the organization. In addition, executives can tie information to high-level company goals by better monitoring the day-today activities of their business units. This all leads to increased profitability and improved operational performance."

The featured keynote speaker at this year's conference is Tim Sanders, best-selling author and leadership coach at Yahoo!. Sanders will share his knowledge from Yahoo! and other leading organizations on the human factors that drive technological advancement.

In addition to hearing from Tim Sanders, attendees of the 2004 Business Objects International User Conference will:

-- Hear directly from top executives, including CEO Bernard Liautaud, on his vision for business intelligence and on the future of Business Objects and its products

-- Learn practical tips and tricks for using BusinessObjects 6.5 and Crystal Enterprise(TM) 10

-- Try the newest Business Objects products in an interactive demo theater

-- Ask questions directly to Business Objects developers and customer service engineers in the Technical Campgrounds

-- Network with other customers to share best practices for deploying and managing Business Objects and Crystal products
