SAN JOSE, CA -- Nov. 15, 1999 -- Business Objects, the world's leading provider of e-business intelligence (e-BI) solutions, announced that The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI) has named Business Objects and its customer Owens & Minor as winners of the 1999 Leadership in Data Warehousing.

Selected as the top data warehousing application from among the 13 Best Practices Winners recognized by TDWI earlier in the year, Owens & Minor and Business Objects will receive the award at a ceremony during TDWI's Leadership Conference in Orlando.

Business Objects is being recognized for its e-business intelligence implementation of WebIntelligence(TM), the company's integrated query, reporting and online analytical processing (OLAP) solution for the Web, at Owens & Minor.

Owens & Minor, a Fortune 500 company headquartered in Richmond, Va., is a distributor of national brand medical and surgical supplies. Using WebIntelligence as its front-end data access tool, Owens & Minor has developed a supply-chain extranet that allows its customers and suppliers to track sales, manage inventory and negotiate improved contracts through product consolidation.

"Owens & Minor was one of the first companies to understand that converging business intelligence and the Internet creates tremendous opportunity for organizations to deliver e-business intelligence extranets," said Bernard Liautaud, president and CEO of Business Objects. "Since Owens & Minor's pioneering effort, companies in many other industries are deploying extranets to share data with their partners, suppliers, and customers."
