Crystal Reports 2011 is reporting software for creating and delivering interactive reports via the web or embedded in enterprise applications. It allows end users to execute decisions from the report itself, accelerating data-analysis and decision-making tasks.
Benefits for Organizations
- Design professional, highly-formatted reports
- Connect data to a library of prebuilt charts and graphics for distribution inside or outside of an organization

Reports can also be previewed in HTML and shared online through SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand, a web-based business intelligence and report-sharing platform.
