Antivia XWIS is an add-on by Antivia that lets us connect to Web Intelligence documents, Crystal Reports and even SQL databases and OLAP cubes. Also, it comes with a large set of components to display and analyze the retrieved data.
As we have seen in Chapter 8, Dashboard Design is already able to connect to a number of data sources. This recipe will show you some of the possibilities of Antivia XWIS and the advantages it has over the standard connection types.
Go to the Antivia website (http://www.antivia.com/) and sign up for a trial of Antivia XWIS. This recipe won’t discuss the server-side installations for the Antivia Framework, which is required to run Antivia XWIS.
