Acknowledgments

Neil FitzGerald: Thanks to all the authors for delivering on our joint goals of making this book a reality and for truly applying yourselves in tough times—you are all world-class and it was a treat to work with each of you.

Special recognition also goes to the Crystal Product and R&D teams for delivering this world-standard suite of products, and the “old school” Crystal NYC team for having helped make the tough times easier—Bill, James, Mike, Dan, Larry, Vic, Devin, and John.

Ryan Marples: Thank you Neil for being the ringleader for this book; you kept us all going. Thanks to our editor Michelle for believing in us. Also thank you to the many people I have learned from at the company over the years including but not limited to: Steve Lucas, Mani Gill, Tim Wier, Steve Holzgraefe, Fred Tummonds, Dave Galloway, Mandeep Jassal, and Keith Thomson.

Naisan Geula: Thanks, Dawn, for putting up with all my idiosyncrasies and even loving me for them, and for being my true partner in all things.

Thanks to my family (yes all of you, even Moochie) for being the craziest bunch that a man could every want to know, and yet making me very proud to be a leaf of this tree. My parents and grandparents especially—thanks for giving me a sense of the transcendent and teaching me what love is.

Ralph, Debra, and Peter—you yanked me away from all things medical before it was too late, and thanks for giving so freely of your hard-earned knowledge and experience. To all my buddies at Crystal and now Business Objects—we are going to have a fun few years!

And to the Creator, not last nor least, for a bringing me forth out of my disappearance and filling me with wonder every day. Amazing place you built here—let's just hope us humans don't mess it up!

Bob Coates: To my friends and family; thanks for helping me to grow, and for all the great times. And to my peers and co-workers, everyday you make our company great.

James Edkins: To the members of the team, my co-workers, and Neil FitzGerald for making this possible.

Michael Voloshko: I want to thank Kathryn for being there for me and loving me, my brother Alex for helping me throughout the years and always finding the time…you are the best. Thanks to Mom and Dad for giving me life and helping me get to where I am today. Thanks also to the rest of my wonderful family and to my friends for being there for me (you know who you are).

I also want to thank Neil for giving me the opportunity to contribute to this book and the rest of the team members at Business Objects for all the hard work that went into creating this product
