Biz-Intelligence Vendors Log Healthy Quarter

Business-intelligence vendors, led by Business Objects SA and Crystal Decisions Inc., reported gains in the June quarter. Companies' need for more visibility into their businesses and closer scrutiny of financial operating results is driving demand, Business Objects CEO Bernard Liautaud says.

Crystal Decisions had revenue of $61.4 million for its fourth quarter ended June 28, a 32% increase from the same period last year. It wasn't all great news.
