SAP Crystal Reports against HANA on SAP BI Platform

Video demo of SAP Crystal Reports against SAP HANA. Getting started & knowing the details is the biggest challenge when you start working with something new or with technologies you have very little experience with.
I have tried to simplify for users on how to get started with creating Crystal reports for Enterprise against the data in SAP HANA and then how to get it published on SAP Businessobjects BI platform 4.2.
Its a very simple 4 step process and viewing the demo while I work on it might be helpful in understanding this.
This video demo covers.
1. Creation of Connection to SAP HANA
2. Details on publishing it to “repository” of SAP BI platform
3. Creating a report using the HANA connection in Crystal Reports for Enterprise
4. Publishing the report from CRE (Crystal reports for Enterprise) designer to SAP BI Platform
5. Accessing the report from Business Objects/BI Platform BI Launchpad
6. Exporting report to PDF
