Plan to release in the Japanese market using cloud environment of Fujitsu.
Fujitsu and SAP said that they are jointly developing a Japanese-language version of the newly launched BusinessObjects BI OnDemand offering, which will be made available to the Japanese market using the cloud environment of Fujitsu.
SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) business intelligence (BI) offering that allows users to access all of their on-demand and on-premise data while the included BusinessObjects Explorer software capabilities enable users to access and navigate business data from any source.
The companies said that the new offering will enable customers to use on-demand offerings from the BusinessObjects portfolio without having to build their own systems, and enables new forms of information usage in the cloud, in combination with other SaaS services.
The Japanese version of SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand, currently in development by Fujitsu and SAP, is scheduled to be released in the Japanese market in May 2010 using the cloud environment of Fujitsu.
