Business Objects is to buy Infommersion, a data visualisation and presentation software supplier, to enhance the way users can present reports.
Infommersion develops information visualisation and presentation software that allows users to access, analyse and share data visually, interactively and in real-time. Its Xcelsius application presents back-end business intelligence data as interactive charts, graphs and dashboards.
The £23m transaction is expected to provide Business Objects with improved interactive reporting within its products.
Business Objects expects to complete the acquisition of Infommersion before the end of 2005.
