The Gripe Line Weblog by Ed Foster

The Gripe Line Weblog by Ed Foster: "Crystal charges to email reports" Wow, sounds like BOBJ is stepping across the line to increase revenues. While some reporting vendors are trying to stimulate report usage across the organizaion, the recent Crystal licensing strategy will likely stifle adoption.

stifle adoption, nah. if i understand foster's posting, they're never going to get a straight answer from their customers, nobody will pay, and this revenue stream is DOA. this might be an indication that Crystal Reports and Reporting products in general might be a sunset technology. could it be that Business Objects revenue of their core server products are also threatened? i see this a as a red flag, a possible gasp for financial breath.
