Crystal Reports

Popular reporting and analysis software for Windows from SAP that is used to retrieve data from more than 30 types of databases. Queries and reports can be made via a Web browser, and the functionality can also be added to proprietary programs written in languages such as C, C++, J++, Delphi and Visual Basic. Crystal Reports was originally a product from Crystal Decisions (formerly Seagate Software) and was acquired by Business Objects in 2003. It later became part of the SAP BusinessObjects family. See Business Objects.
