Adding Crystal Analysis Reports to Your Application

Thus far, the chapters on the Crystal Enterprise Object Model have focused on delivering relational Crystal Reports. This section discusses delivering Crystal Analysis reports in custom Web applications.

NOTE

Crystal Reports can report off OLAP data sources such as Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services as well. However, Crystal Reports provides OLAP Reporting as opposed to what Crystal Analysis provides, which is OLAP Analysis. If all you need is to view snapshots of a cube's data, Crystal Reports is the best solution. However, the real power of building OLAP cubes is in the explorative analysis that can be performed. Instead of simply answering the “what” and “when” and “who” questions, that OLAP analysis provided by Crystal Analysis can answer the “how” and “why” questions.
