Hyperion vs. Business Objects

Is there any documentation out there that compares Hyperion to Business Objects? If so, can you share where it is? Just found out that we are looking at getting rid Hyperion and going to BO. Need some supporting details to keep Hyperion and get rid of BO.

    <p>hey JAleck, you're best bet is to either contact your accountrep (I can try to find out who that is, if you don't know: let meknow) or to submit a request here:http://www.hyperion.com/company/contact/request_information.cfm</p><p>These kinds of comparisons can get pretty complicated, soHyperion can provide better/more targeted info if we knowjust a little more about your particulars.</p><p>I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but I hope ithelps.</p>

    Thanks! Am looking more of a comparison between the functionality of BO vs Hyperion. In my opinion, BO is more of a query & reporting tool whereas Hyperion is that plus much more. Actually, any documentation would be good.

    <p>One other quick thought: we have a document that maps thepre-System 9 products to the new System 9 products, and it alsoincludes a short summary of what each product does:</p><p>http://dev.hyperion.com/products/product_mig_disc.cfm</p><p>We're currently doing some usability studies on the web site,and a number of folks have said this doc helps explain (briefly)what the different Hyperion products do. HTH,</p>

    Thanks again! There doesn't seem to be much info about Hyperion vs. BO as there is Hyperion vs. Cognos. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif" border="0">
