He was probably referring to the dbExpress components. And it's definitely
different from IBO. It's the replacement of the BDE for connectivity for
SQL based servers. But, it will never compare to IBX and even less to
IBO. I never had the occasion to really test them that much to give a
comparison, but the components are only for connectivity and you use the
normal data-aware components that comes with Delphi. IBO is easier to
setup and use compared to dbExpress.

Hope this argument helps your case.
