Using Crystal reports we can connect to any database directly using one of the providers such as ODBC Connection.
But in BO we have to use Universe concept to generate the report using WEBI.

To my Understanding Crystal Report is older then Webi and it has more user friendly Connection available compare than webi. Custom formatting, Wide range of Variable, Predefined Filter, Printer and etc.... It usually use for Transitional data.
