Get ready for some more SAP BusinessObjects name changes ...

On Monday, SAP announced the SAP Crystal solutions portfolio. The big news with this is that the new portfolio is bringing about the phasing out of the Xcelsius brand  -- one of the more well-known BOBJ names.

Note that while several of the Xcelsius products will be re-branded with SAP Crystal Reports, Xcelsius Enterprise becomes SAP BusinessObjects Dashboard Design. This apparently has to do with the way the application is sold, but it's a little confusing. In fact, based on some of the initial comments I've read, existing customers using Xcelsius are quite confused. I'll be honest that it doesn't seem clear what's happening with plain old Xcelsius right now, but stay tuned. From what I can tell, this also takes the SAP BusinessObjects Dashboard Design name, but I'm not positive.
