Hi,

I recently attended a SAP Virtual trianing on SAP Business Objects BI 4.0.

Here are few extracts from that which probably shows some light to you:

SAP Crystal Reports 2011

1. UI and associated processing servers remain the same as CR 2008

2. Incremental update to CR 2008 with a few new features*

3. Continue to provide current CR 2008 functionality as-is for existing customers

SAP Crystal Reports for Enterprise 4.0

1. Major update & redesign of the Crystal Reports Designer and associated processing servers

2. Focus on streamlined report design, reporting against BI 4.0 Universe, & reporting against SAP BW data

3. Provide the foundation for all future releases of Crystal Reports

Differences between these two releases:

Data Source & Usage Type General Recommendation

1. SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 SAP Crystal Reports Relational Universe (UNX) for Enterprise

OLAP Universe (UNX)

2. SAP NetWeaver BW 7 BEx Query (BICS) SAP Crystal Reports for Enterprise

3. SAP NetWeaver BW 3.5 BEx Query SAP Crystal Reports 2011

4. SAP Profitability Cost Management SAP Crystal Reports for Enterprise through Analysis View

SAP Strategy Management

SAP Budget, Planning and Consolidation

SAP Extended Analytics

5. Platform Driven Alerting SAP Crystal Reports for Enterprise

6. Business Views SAP Crystal Reports 2011

7. Direct RDBMS or OLAP access SAP Crystal Reports 2011

SAP ERP/ Live Office Content/

Enterprise search content
