Haworth Inc., una importante empresa de mobiliario de oficinas estadounidense utiliza las soluciones Business Intelligence de Business Objects. La empresa, con una cifra de negocios de más de 1.200 millones de dólares, utiliza las soluciones de Business Intelligence de Business Objects para gestionar toda la información financiera y las ventas de la empresa; entre ellas, destaca Data Integrator 6.5, la plataforma de integración de datos del fabricante BI.


SAN JOSE, Calif.–May 25, 2004– Business Objects, the world’s leading provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions, today announced that Haworth Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of office furniture, has standardized on Business Objects. A global company with over $1.2 billion in sales in 2003, Haworth uses Business Objects business intelligence solutions to track, understand, and manage operational performance. As part of Haworth’s initiative to unify its BI platform on Business Objects, the company recently selected BusinessObjects(TM) Data Integrator 6.5, the real-time and batch data integration platform from Business Objects. 
As Haworth continues to grow, it is critical that they develop a business intelligence system that ensures information accountability, which will allow managers across the company to work from a single version of all corporate information and make decisions based on timely, accurate data. Previously, Haworth used several different business intelligence tools, which led to conflicting interpretations of the same data. By standardizing reporting and data integration technology from Business Objects, Haworth has improved managers’ ability to make business decisions confidently. Today employees in the finance, logistics, purchasing, and marketing departments use Business Objects to obtain accurate and timely information on their operations. Haworth is also using Business Objects to structure data specifically for its Six Sigma initiative.

Haworth selected Data Integrator for its functionality, ease of use, and ability to integrate with their existing databases and Business Objects infrastructure. With Data Integrator, Haworth can extract information out of Oracle applications and databases and rapidly prepare it for reporting and distribution with the Business Objects infrastructure. Since implementing Data Integrator, Haworth has substantially increased the accuracy of its data and reduced the time of the entire BI process. Business Objects Professional Services Organization (PSO) worked closely with Haworth to deploy Data Integrator and consult with employees to ensure the system addressed their requirements.

«As part of our decision-making process, we formed a cross-functional team to determine our strategic direction and select one BI provider,» said Steve Wilkins, Information Services Application Manager for Haworth. «Our group selected Business Objects because it provides the most breadth and depth in terms of products, services, and innovation. Business Objects Data Integrator is a great example of this — it is very powerful and intuitive, whereas the previous solution took longer and did not retrieve all the data that users wanted. Now we have a more reliable ETL solution that frees up IT resources to focus on other projects.»

«Organizations like Haworth recognize that standardizing on one BI platform can lower total cost of ownership while also improving employee productivity and operational performance,» said Dave Kellogg, senior vice president of worldwide marketing for Business Objects. «In addition, by unifying data integration and BI on Business Objects, Haworth can take an important step towards achieving information accountability, ensuring that their data is accurate and consistent across the enterprise. This is a key capability in today’s economic climate where clean data and one version of the truth are important requirements for running a successful and legally compliant business.»
