Why Implement Business Views?

Business Views offer tremendous advantages over traditional Crystal Report design processes by removing the most difficult data-intensive tasks from report design. This facilitates a change in the way that report creation occurs, as less database-savvy report designers can take on the bulk of report designing, leaving developer or DBA-oriented tasks to the specialists. This approach also results in less re-work and speeds report creation, which is arguably the most costly aspect of owning a Business Intelligence solution. Business Views provide a variety of benefits:

  • Abstracting the complexities of the database

  • Putting report design in the hands of business people

  • Facilitating object reuse

  • Dynamically switching data sources

  • Simplifying report transportability

  • Providing data security at the row and column level
