Xcelsius Present 2008 Released!

Today, Business Objects, an SAP company unveiled a new version of Xcelsius, its called “Xcelsius Present 2008”. For people who get easily intimidated by a lot of Editions of the same software, dont worry, Xcelsius Present is same as Xcelsius Engage 2008 but with limited features. One of the major is data sources. “Microsoft Excel XP/2003/2007” is the only data source that can be used with Xcelsius Present 2008. I personally feel this as a great move by Business Objects, an SAP company. They have addressed business users who need to create static dashboards with pre-existing MS Excel and Xcelsius templates. By stripping the features and adding templates they have managed to get the price down to $195 for a single copy.
