SAP Crystal Server 2011 includes SAP BusinessObjects Explorer software for guided data exploration. Now, users can search and explore business data, without help from IT, and find immediate answers.
ENGAGING USER EXPERIENCE
The UI for SAP Crystal Server has been redesigned for a clean, unified look and feel. It has been redesigned so that users can easily transition between SAP Crystal Server and SAP BusinessObjects Explorer, leveraging the common user interface elements in both tools.
SIMPLIFIED DATA ACCESS
SAP Crystal Server simplifies data access by leveraging universes built with the new report design tool. You can use the query panel to build queries against the universe.
The new report design tool in SAP Crystal Server includes UI innovations such as smart guidelines.
OLAP AND RELATIONAL DATA ACCESS
With the new report design tool in SAP Crystal Server, you can access data from both OLAP and relational data sources.
You can combine both online analytical processing (OLAP) and relational data sources into a single, unified semantic layer - allowing you to present relational data in a hierarchical view, with access to hierarchical OLAP data as well.
