New Microsoft product to tackle business reports | CNET News.com

New Microsoft product to tackle business reports | CNET News.com: "Microsoft expects to deliver the beta version of the new product--code-named Maestro--in September, Lewis Levin, Microsoft's corporate vice president of Office Business Applications, told a group of reporters. A select group of users is now testing the product, he said.
...
Microsoft views business-intelligence software as a $3 billion to $4 billion-a-year market, Levin said. Maestro is aimed directly at the top companies in that field, including Business Objects, Cognos and Hyperion, he added. They each make programs that deliver reports and alerts to business managers, indicating how a company is tracking with sales and profit targets and other performance goals, such as returns, warrantee claims and discounting levels."
