  • Analizing data to best customers using Crystal ReportsMay 22, 2009. In the sales analysis, there is a principle named the Pareto principle also known as the 80-20 rule. The 80-20 rule states that 80% of the effects come from the 20% of the causes and then the remaining 20% effects come from 80% of the causes. Pareto observed that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population. One example in the IT world is that Microsoft has noted that 20% of the most reported bugs are the causes of the 80% of the errors or crashes of the systems. After Pareto observed this principle, a lot of application appeared. One of the most common applications of the Pareto principle is in the sales analysis. Companies perform analysis in their sales orders in order to discover the best customers, that is, the 80% of the sales come from the 20% of the customers. In this article, I will show how to perform a sales analysis using Crystal Reports. For this example, we will use the AdventureWorks database shipped with SQL Server 2005.
