Business Objects (Nasdaq:BOBJ) introduced a new initiative that enables its industry-leading partner community to extend the recently introduced Business Objects Crystal DecisionsÂ® mid-market portfolio. The program is designed to encourage and support partner development of “QuickStart Packs” â€“ certified, add-on solutions that address specific vertical, application, or operational needs of small to mid-size companies.
QuickStart Packs are integrated solutions that essentially package the extensive experience Business Objects partners have in key vertical industries, including Retail Banking, Insurance, Healthcare and Manufacturing; or with specific line-of-business applications such as JD Edwards.
