  • About Database

    A database is a collection of data stored and maintained for one or more uses. Most modern databases are managed by a Database Management System (DBMS), a set of computer programs that controls the creation, maintenance, and the use of the database with computer as a platform or of an organization and its end users. It allows organizations to place control of organization-wide database development in the hands of database administrators (DBAs) and other specialists.

    The proper integration of databases can dramatically increase the functionality of all types of applications, whether or not Web-enabled.

Course Outline

This Crystal Reports course is intended for students who have little to no experience with Crystal Reports. The course will provide students with a general overview of the basic functionality and a general understanding of report design, including the need to provide quality reports in various presentation formats. Students will gain practical experience through hands-on exercises.

Our instructor-led online classes are conducted in the 2011 version of the software. Your instructor will point out the minor differences between versions where they exist. For our custom instructor-led online and onsite classes, we use the version of the software you use in your office.

Please note that XI is the older version of Crystal Reports and should not be confused with 2011.
