In the beginning (mid-1980s) The Cunningham Group of Vancouver, BC, Canada, founded Crystal Services, which resulted in the creation of the insanely successful, pervasive and ubiquitous Crystal Reports. By 1992, Crystal Reports worked not only with accounting system data, but with just about any data. Based on its versatility, and some extremely masterful marketing, Crystal Reports was bundled into 800 or so IT products. In 1996, Seagate Technology bought Crystal Reports. Along about that time, IT professionals began hearing about, and using, Seagate Info and Seagate Enterprise. Seagate Technologies later became known as Crystal Decisions, and introduced Crystal Enterprise and Crystal Analysis to the reporting world. BusinessObjects acquired Crystal Decisions in 2003. SAP bought BusinessObjects in 2008.

Through it all, Ablaze Group adapted, grew, learned, while increasing knowledge, skills, experience, product lines and services offerings.
Crystal Reports: The Complete Reference, by Ablaze Group's George Peck, for versions 7.0, 8.0, 8.5, 9.0, 10, XI and 2008, with chapters devoted to Seagate Info, Seagate Analysis, Crystal Info, Crystal Enterprise, Crystal Server.
It's been an exciting and very intersting journey.
