Business Objects puts Acta software in its range

French software developer Business Objects SA has rebranded two software products it acquired through its purchase of privately held data integration specialist Acta Technology Inc. It also announced that it will include data integration in its range of professional services.

Acta developed software to extract, analyze and cache data from ERP (enterprise resource planning) and other back-office systems.

Business Objects has rebranded two of Acta’s software tools. ActaWorks has become BusinessObjects Data Integrator and Acta’s eCache has been renamed BusinessObjects Rapid Marts.

“It’s a first stage of integration into Business Objects’ catalog. There has been no modification of the products themselves: the Acta products complement our existing range, so we’re offering them just as they are,” said Fran
