Simple, Powerful, and Trusted Ad Hoc Query and Analysis

Business conditions are changing rapidly,

and in order for you to respond fast and

effectively, you need timely access
to

critical business information. The data

you need is spread across different data

sources, and while IT can provide
access

to it through standardized reports, the

process can be time and resource consuming.

Plus, finding business
information

that’s not c
ontained in standard reports

can be difficult, and requests for additional

views of the data often
result in user frustration and report backlog. For users who not only want to view

standard reports but also need to
analyze

the data they see, there’s the d
esktop

edition of SAP®
Crystal

Interactive

Analysis software
. It
puts

you in
control of your data by providing

Audience





Business Users

Business Users

are information workers who consume information captured in reports. Occasionally they
make slight
modifications
or even create simple reports to get a better view of the information
and
make
stronger
decisions.
Business users live in any department of any size organization
,

in any industry vertical. Examples include: sales
managers, business analysts,
finance manage
rs
, brand managers, trade marketing managers, technical support reps,
demand planners,
etc.

They
usually
open, view and explore information in interactive reports to find answers to their
business questions. In order to improve the quality of their decisio
ns they
need to work with the
latest corporate
information.
They
also distribute
reports
via email to other users inside and outside their organization
-

as PDF, .rtf or
Microsoft Office documents.
They require access to reports with
different frequency: d
aily, weekly, quarterly, etc..


IT Professionals

IT professionals

are part of the team that deploys, maintains and further enhances a company’s systems

hardware
and software. When choosing a reporting solution they require full flexibility in the form of full support for .NET and
Java applications, all major browsers,
operating systems and data sources
-

in order to minimize future IT costs. They
are interested in solutions that help reduce application integration and report design cost. Helping end users to get
more information from the same report is top priority for
IT, as they try to reduce cost through minimizing the number of
reports they create and maintain.


Developers

Developers

are usually part of IT, VAR or OEM organizations. They embed reporting in business applications


internal or for commercial purpose. Applications can be deployed internally or externally, as thick client of web apps.
Developers require reporting solution
s that support Java and .NET, connect to virtually any data source, and work with
all major operating systems and internet browsers, offering them full integration flexibility with business applications.
Also, they value SDK/APIs that help them get more ou
t of the reporting module inside their business application. Work
productivity is a concern for Developers, so they value those solutions that reduce the level of hand coding.

Competing & Compl
e
menting


Microsoft Office


How
SAP Crystal Presentation Design

Complements Microsoft Excel


Microsoft Excel is a great way to
share data and
get started analyzing company data

before sharing the
results
with other colleagues
or managers
.


But users want to benefit from the data
-
sensitive context

,
for example:





A s
preadsheet of just rows and columns of data doesn’t help anyone



Excel files do not have the built
-
in capability to expose the origin of the data at all times and in all situations



Users cannot manipulate data objects; calculations are only done at the cell

level.



Reporting happens in the context of a grid



SAP Crystal
Interactive Analysis

adds additional insight to any data stored in Excel documents



Users deal with a common definition of data objects, not just cell values, greatly facilitating analytical

workflows



Rich document metadata offers users a complete pictu
re of where the data comes from, leading to trust in
decisions based on Interactive Analysis documents



Free
-
form layout, combined with powerful reporting functionalities allows users to communi
cate their analysis
efficiently and effectively
