Recrystallize

I am looking into products for web reporting, and found Recrystallize. It boasts high acclaim from it's customers on it's website, but I wanted to know if anyone out there has any experiance with it, and what they thought.

I'm not totally familiar with Recrystallize, but I do work for Crystal Decisions so what I can tell you is that the product is built on top of web reporting functionality that comes as standard from Crystal. The example web reports that are shown are identical to those that come with Crystal Enterprise, for instance. We provide and SDK to allow users to customize their reports and do things we don't "out of the box", and it appears that Recrystallize automates the generation of that code for some common cases. So whether you want to use Recrystallize really depends on whether you need custom code, and if you do whether you need to generate it automatically.

Std disclaimer applies: these are my opinions & not those of my employer etc.
