PeopleSoft Extends OEM and Reseller Agreement with Business Objects.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Crystal Reports and Crystal Enterprise from Business Objects Enhance Reporting for PeopleSoft Applications

Today at its Connect 2004 user conference, PeopleSoft Inc. (Nasdaq:PSFT) announced that it has extended its worldwide OEM and reseller agreement with Business Objects (Nasdaq: BOBJ). With this extended agreement, PeopleSoft will embed and resell Crystal Reports(R) and Crystal Enterprise(TM) within the PeopleSoft Tools platform for future releases of PeopleSoft(R) Enterprise and PeopleSoft(R) EnterpriseOne applications. This agreement establishes Business Objects as PeopleSoft's preferred Business Intelligence partner.

In future releases, PeopleSoft customers will have seamless access to Crystal Reports and Crystal Enterprise providing full-featured reporting, including drill-down functionality, alerting, charting, web-based report creation, and modification. PeopleSoft's security features will be integrated with Crystal Enterprise, providing a single point for controlling access to privileged business data. Additionally, PeopleSoft users will be able to leverage Crystal Enterprise Live Office to easily format active data into Microsoft Office Excel, PowerPoint, and Word documents. With this extended production reporting platform, Crystal Reports and Crystal Enterprise will help increase employee productivity and ease IT maintenance.

"Crystal Reports has proven to be a robust reporting engine for PeopleSoft applications for more than a decade," said Jesper Anderson, group vice president and general manager, PeopleSoft Tools & Technology. "The addition of Crystal Enterprise to our tools platform is expected to give our customers an even more powerful and scalable solution for production report creation and delivery."

"The expansion of our OEM agreement with PeopleSoft further strengthens our position as the worldwide leader in enterprise reporting, as thousands of PeopleSoft customers will have direct access to our Crystal line of reporting products," said Bernard Liautaud, chairman and CEO of Business Objects. "Once the new releases are available, PeopleSoft customers will be able to more easily take advantage of our powerful reporting solution, to help them track, understand, and manage their critical business information."

Business Objects is also one of the strategic reporting and business intelligence partners for the PeopleSoft Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) suite of products. PeopleSoft EPM provides an open framework and deep integration with the market leading reporting and business intelligence providers.

The new releases resulting from this expanded relationship are expected to start to become available in Q4 of this year.
