SAP Crystal Reports 2011 and SAP Crystal Dashboard Design 2011
SAP Crystal Reports 2011 is used to design reports, and SAP Crystal Dashboard Design 2011, departmental edition (formerly Xcelsius Engage edition) is used to design dashboards. Both products were created to work with SAP Crystal Server 2011 and require a separate license purchase.
SAP BusinessObjects Explorer software in also included in named-user licenses for SAP Crystal Server. Each named-user license of SAP Crystal Server 2011 purchased covers you for one named-user license of SAP BusinessObjects Explorer. This tool enables end users to perform guided searches and explore corporate data.
Next-Generation Report Design
In addition, SAP Crystal Server also includes our next-generation report design tool. This is the initial release of our updated, easier-to-use report designer. To help ensure a high-quality release, we are phasing in the introduction of this designer to the market, starting with products, such as SAP Crystal Server, that we sell with maintenance. A separate license of SAP Crystal Reports is still required for production deployments.

Other client tools used to administer the system include the information design tool to create and modify the semantic layer (universes) and the business view manager to create and modify business views.
