Using External Reporting Tools
Many Aprimo customers leverage external reporting tools such as Crystal Reports, Business Objects, Power BI, Tableau, SSRS, and Cognos to report on Aprimo data.
There are two approaches to leveraging external reporting tools.
Report Distribution lets you set up a schedule to export the data from Aprimo Reports on a regular basis to an SFTP site. You may pick up the data files from the SFTP site, load them into a database or data warehouse you own, and report off that database or data warehouse. This is especially useful when you need to combine data that lives in Aprimo with data from other sources.
