SAP Crystal Reports

Overall Satisfaction with SAP Crystal

I'm a Business Consultant. I give training of "Crystal Reports." I think this is a very robust application. It has a particular form of work that you need to understand in order to obtain good results. I would like them to improve the different types of graphs. Easy access to help, with samples of functionality. For a programmer of reports in "Crystal Reports," you need good training and to know something of database terms.
  • Easy to create reports
  • Combined with SAP BO security you can access different users with different roles
  • Can add easily any comments about your data. Even I think I can use CR for generating infographics
  • I recently only use CR for training
You can access different data sources, but you need to go under SAP BO platform to improve access and security.
Under SAP BO platform the access and sharing is easy
SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform, SAP Lumira, Microsoft Power BI
CR is good for reporting, but I think is not appropriate for creating Dashboards for example.
