The Real Value of Crystal Enterprise: Content

Within most organizations, there is a broad need for reporting, querying, and analyzing all types of data. The array of tools that are integrated with Crystal Enterprise enable the creation of the right type of content to meet those diverse needs. Crystal Enterprise would be of little benefit without engaging content for users to consume.

Rich Content Creation Tools: The Keys to Success

Most people familiar with Crystal Reports have come to expect content (reports) developed using the tool to have interactive content—for example, the capability to click on a slice of a pie chart to drill down into the next layer of detail associated with that portion of the data. The key to success with Crystal Enterprise is combining the content creation and design capability of tools such as Crystal Reports with the management and delivery capabilities of Crystal Enterprise. Even simple requirements, such as parameters within a Crystal Report, can be automatically delivered through Crystal Enterprise. Each tool available to create content for Crystal Enterprise is targeted to leverage specific technologies to optimize the user experience when viewing and interacting with the report over the Web. The word “tools” is used because Crystal Reports is not the only integrated content-creation report designer available for Crystal Enterprise.
