I just read an interesting blog post from Andrew Baines entitled “Farewell Xcelsius/BOB Dashboards/Crystal Dashboards“.
Apparently, SAP will stop supporting their dashboard tool some time next year, and they have dropped it from the price list. I also just checked the SAP “30-day trial” page and the listing for “SAP Crystal Dashboard Design” is no longer listed there.
I can’t say that I will miss this tool, since it never really fit with what I did. You can read my approach to dashboards here. But if you are using this software it is time to start looking for something else.
