Ron, SAP Business Objects is a solid player in the BI market, backed, of course, by the leading business software provider. SAP claims they have over 45,000 Business Objects users, the great benefit being that the solution is highly scalable - it can grow as you grow. That being said, it's not the cheapest solution out there. BI is a booming segment, and you can find very robust, feature-rich competing solutions that are a fraction of the cost of Business Objects.
Cost. SAP BO is a great solution, but it's not cheap, especially when there's a Roambi that's free. SAP is spending a lot of time and effort in BI these days, so I am hoping to see them take their products into the new cloud era. They already have HANA, now let's see that kind of innovation in other product lines as well.
