HR systems hold a vast amount of data. This data provides important information. This is then used for key decision making within organisations. HR systems are complex databases that hold data on the employees lifecycle with the organisation. This can amount to a lot of data over time. Reporting on this data is the one single frustration that we come up against from organisations all the time. Due to the confidentiality of the data, IT teams are not given the access to assist with report writing. So, unless the HR team has the budget for an HRIS resource, Crystal report writing remains a constant frustration to them.
With most systems now, there are different ways of obtaining the data from systems. These are typically through data extracts into spreadsheets. Then the data can be manipulated, running Crystal report writing, with pre-defined data to give you the required data. As required, displaying management information, through dashboards on screen.
Each of these methods require the underlying data to be queried to return the data that you require. In an HR system that typically has several hundred tables, this is generally where the challenge lies. All systems hold the data in various ways. Creating the joins between the tables to return accurate data is what cause a lot of organisation to struggle, when it comes to Crystal report writing.
Most reputable HR systems come with a number of standard reports pre built within the systems. However, nearly always, clients will always have their own requirements that require bespoke reports written.
