Breya said Business Objects developed the XI 3.0 platform by focusing on three trends:

- That people work in teams, which means that business people can no longer make informed decisions with structured data alone;

- that social and professional networks have taken on a greater role in how things are built, trusted and communicated;

- and that a company can no longer be a fully vertical organization. Companies have to have expertise leveraged across a value chain.

The only thing that appears to be missing from the XI 3.0 platform upgrade is input from SAP.

Prior to the close of the acquisition in January, analysts predicted that SAP Business Objects would release a BI platform based on Business Objects' technology with some SAP attributes. That might be more likely to come in future iterations.

The XI 3.0 platform will be generally available during the first quarter of 2008, while the Mobile feature will be available later in 2008.
