30 Years of BusinessObjects – Evolution by Acquisition and Integration

BusinessObjects just celebrated it’s 30th birthday last month.

What has kept the solution strong is its ability to evolve through acquiring and integrating new technologies and capabilities.

In honor of this tremendous milestone, we will be talking with two giants who played critical roles as part of this historical 30 year journey:

Donald MacCormick who played a key role around the time of the Crystal Decisions and Xcelsius acquisitions and was the CTO at BusinessObjects before the acquisition by SAP and Mark Hudson who had a habit of creating or participating in companies that got acquired and integrated into BusinessObjects.

Donald and Mark will talk about what they learned from the history of BusinessObjects and where they see BO, BI and most organizations heading next.
