We are looking to upgrade something more current than the Crystal Enterprise X we are running to distribute reports. We have had discussion with a SQP partner but the initial quote was a bit more than expected. Now we are researching how to attempt some of this on our own to learn more about the process. Unfortunately, I am a little confused on the upgrade path to something that will satisfy the same needs we have which is basically the distribution of reports. While I continue to research I thought I’d throw some questions out here as well as documentation I’m looking for.
What is the better match for Crystal Enterprise; BusinessObjects Enterprise, Crystal Report Viewer or Crystal Server?
What is the upgrade path to any of these from Crystal Enterprise?
Are there any intermediate steps?
Sizing and planning documents for any product.
Any answers, assistance in locating documentation or constructive comments are appreciated.
Hi - I think the answer is "it depends"
We've gone from Crystal 2008 to 2011 to 2013 - no issues so far
Here are some previous webcasts:
This is the web space Crystal Reports
Are you using Crystal Server today? How are you distributing reports? I will also ask our partner advisor, George Peck, to look at this thread.
Thanks for the response. I'll take a look at the webcasts.
We are currently still using Crystal Enterprise X for running and distributing reports (mainly via email links). We are not using Crystal Server but would be open to looking at it or an equivilent to move to.
