I am planning on pursuing a BI reporting course. Business Objects (BO) is the tool of choice to me. I am however not clear what the difference between Crystal Objects 2008 and Web Intelligence (Business Objects Enterprise XI3) is. Actually, my career progression roadmap is to also do a data integration certification like Informatica. I am currently doing a MSc IT professional (Databases) degree specialising in Oracle. Eventually I would like to be a BI Consultant. With this in mind, which reporting tool would you recommend between the above mentioned. I am not counting Cognos 8 out if you feel that it might be the best option for my intended development. Many thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Both Crystal and WebI are BO products…Crystal is for formatted reporting and WebI is focused on adhooc – casual user developed reports.
