    Session 7 of 8: Hidden Gems!!! Advantages of Using Universe with Crystal Reports

    Hosted by: Global BusinessObjects Network

    Attend this session to learn the benefits of using Universe as source for the Crystal Reports

    Major topics include:

    ·       Using Universe as Single source of Truth (Everyone in the organization uses the same data which is validated thoroughly)

    ·       Create once and reuse (Avoid creating SQL statements or Table mappings for every report, build the universe once and reuse it for many crystal reports)

    ·       Making Report Maintenance and Change management easy with Universe (Update at one place which reflects in all of your reports instead of modifying the embedded SQL in every report)

    ·       Setting up and using the advantages of the integrated security in Universe (Implementing @BOUSER to filter the data based on the user running the report)

    ·       Leveraging the advantages of Universe functions in making the complex crystal reports simple (Using the universe functions will make the report developer's life easy)
