New Arrival: Business Objects Launches Information OnDemand
Business-intelligences solutions provider Business Objects (www.businessobjects.com) has launched Information OnDemand, an online store where companies can access external market information with the click of a button, enabling them to see the true picture of their performance.
According to San Francisco-based Business Objects, Information OnDemand allows companies to gain a view beyond their internal data and quickly perform market research, sales planning, financial and competitive analysis, and industry benchmarking, using the market's leading business-intelligence solutions.
In addition to the opening of the online store, Business Objects also is announcing the availability of eBay market data.
Through a new partnership with Data Unison, master distributor of eBay market data, the store will provide access to eBay data, the world's largest e-commerce data set. Powerful information such as sales and market numbers for top-selling brands, and geographic and demographic data for purchases will be delivered pre-packaged and ready for analysis. For example, a retailer in the Bay Area could access the eBay sales patterns of the Nintendo Wii by state, from May to June, to instantly understand where market demand is high or supply might be running low, in order to create a marketing promotion for that region or to analyze price sensitivity to new product releases
Anyone can access the online store and choose from a menu of pre-built reports with configurable parameters. The reports and dashboards, immediately available, are based on data from well-known industry sources, with information on millions of companies.
