I believe Crystal Reports works with DB2 data.

I think you're stuck deploying on a Windows server as far as I know.

subject: SAP Business Objects BI software

Does anyone know if SAP Business Objects BI software runs on an iSeries?
I know SAP ERP does. I was thinking Business Objects was a Windows only
product. If the application itself does not run on an iSeries do you
know if the database it uses can be DB2 on an iSeries? I know it can
access any ODBC compliant database to get data for the reports but my
question concerns where and how it stores the report definitions. We
will be buying a package soon that comes with Business Objects as its
reporting tool and I was wondering if we could not install two or three
more Windows servers just to run Business Objects and its database and
maybe just run that on our existing iSeries. I am planning on asking the
vendor the same questions but they are not an iSeries focused vendor and
may not have any idea.
