According to am article at cio.com, SAP is going to start retiring some products that overlap between the SAP and Business Objects product line. Retiring products mentioned in the article include:
Business Objects’ SRC
SEM Business Consolidation System
Business Objects’ performance management product
But the most interesting comment to me was this one:
“It still has to deal with overlap between Crystal Reports, Web Intelligence, Dashboard Builder, Voyager and other products on the Business Objects side, and Visual Analyzer and BEx BI from SAP. Analysts expect mostly Business Objects products to take precedence.”
So it looks like Crystal Reports will survive this merger just as it did when BO purchased Crystal Decisions.
