Crystal Reports for SAP Business One: Overview
Crystal Reports
is a "business intelligence" tool. This is a hot new buzzword, but it's meaningful. The old days of "reporting" are over, and we're entering a new model where companies need up-to-date information and they need to massage it to look for opportunities in the business.  A static report showing previous days sales is great, but a real time widget on your company dashboard showing up-to-the-hour sales volume is better. SAP is making this possible with Crystal Reports for SAP Business One and the other BusinessObjects product Suite.

With built-in intelligence tools from SAP, small and midsize companies can create, manage, and deliver packaged reports, dashboards, ad-hoc reporting, and what-if analysis to any user at any location. Whether you need to automatically email users a packet of pre-built reports everyday, or build a company dashboard that pulls in financial, inventory and sales data into one screen, SAP Business One provides the resources to do it with Crystal Reports.

Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
