Business Objects for Total

Total is to standardize on business intelligence applications from Business Objects.

Total has selected Business Objects (BO) Enterprise 6 as its corporate standard for business intelligence (BI). Total uses BI for management dashboards, scorecards, enterprise performance applications, customer intelligence, reporting and customer and partner extranets. Total deploys BO’s Data Integrator, WebIntelligence and BW Universe Builder to ‘track, understand, and manage’ operational data from systems including SAP.


Total CIO Philippe Chalon said, “Standardization is about generating profits, not about wielding power! Some standardization is essential—wherever data is generated. By standardizing on Business Objects across exploration, production, refining, marketing and chemicals, users gain from each other’s experience, creating synergies across the company.”


BO chairman Bernard Liautaud said, “Standardizing on one business intelligence platform gives Total a single interface to key data sources like SAP, allowing for significant greater enterprise performance gains”. A customer since 1991, Total has deployed more than 6,000 Business Objects licenses in NT and Unix environments.
