CA Forum: Desktop Intelligence Reporting

I use Business Objects to report data from Salesforce.com. At the end of each quarter we have a lot of activity with reps scrambling to close deals so they can make their numbers. I want to be able to provide to management a daily change report so they can better monitor the activity. I want to show that today Opp 12345 has a probability of 100%, yesterday it had a probability of 75%, the day before it had a probability of 75%. Today it has revenue of $100,000, yesterday it had revenue of $750,000 and the day before that it had revenue of $500,0000. etc.

The best way would be to have a snapshot of the data each day available in a database and simply report off this structure. Deski is not able to "store" previous data as the latest data is retrieved on refresh.

Another option is to look into XI Release 3's capability to show changed data in reports. This may be worth while investigating, but I think the solution above would be better suited.
