Business Objects to acquire data quality vendor

Business Objects on Wednesday announced plans to acquire data quality vendor Firstlogic for US$69 million in cash.

The move will help the business intelligence company build out its enterprise information management strategy by adding data quality tools to its portfolio, according to officials from San Jose-based Business Objects.

Data quality tools are designed to cleanse data after it is extracted from back-end data sources, to ensure that it's correct before being sent to a data warehouse for analysis.

The acquisition is expected to be completed in the second quarter.
