More informations about this product


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.

This product is an upgrade that requires a previous version of Crystal Reports. It replaces the Standard, Professional, and Developer editions of previous versions, and includes the equivalent of the Developer edition feature set.

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
  • Export as PDFs, Excel spreadsheets, RTF documents, or read-only reports

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

Major Capabilities

  • Animated charts, graphics, and video files can be placed in reports through Xcelsius and Flash. The Flash (SWF) files can be embedded in the report or linked via a website.
  • End users can perform on-report sorting, filtering, and reformatting interactively without requerying the database through the use of optional parameters. (Requires use of the .NET Winform and .NET Webform viewers.)
  • users can access customer data in their reports via deploying the driver to SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand.
  • Report authors can use the Crystal Reports design tool integrated into Visual Studio to create reports.
