Informatica Enjoins; BO Responds

SOA’s not just the uber-heavyweights battling for enormous enterprise IT contracts. Before there was SOA there was web services, and data integration and business intelligence. Now two of the smaller but important pioneers have tangled. News has emerged that Informatica has won an injunction against Business Objects to prevent “proven, patented data transformation technology” from being used in BO’s Data Integrator.

The beef goes clear back to 2002. In April this year, a jury sided with Informatica.

Wethinks this isn’t the last volley…
