SQL Server http://sqlmag.com/taxonomy/term/7353/more en Reporting Services 2016 Unplugged http://sqlmag.com/reporting/reporting-services-2016-unplugged <div class="node-body article-body">In SQL Server 2016, my favorite report tools get some love with a few cool new features including, a little polish added to a few existing features, and a complete Report Portal overhaul. Reporting Services reached a certain maturity as a rock-solid reporting platform somewhere just after 2008 - or at least it got past puberty. Most report developers would agree, the versions that followed SQL Server 2008 R2 were more like a midlife crisis for the product, because the feature set stalled for about five years. The latest version is not a complete product rebirth by any means, but it is a good indication Reporting Services is not headed for retirement any time soon; it now plays an important role in the larger Microsoft reporting ecosystem. Instead of rehashing other information posted about new and upcoming features, I’ll share my experience thus far with the latest community technical preview (CTP 3.2) and some insights from the product developers. As with any preliminary software build, your experience may differ. </div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/reporting/reporting-services-2016-unplugged" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/reporting/reporting-services-2016-unplugged#comments Reporting Business Intelligence Business Intelligence Professional Report Builder Reporting Reporting Services sql server 2016 SQL Server Reporting Services Mon, 25 Jan 2016 01:01:00 +0000 28761 at http://sqlmag.com Virtual Clustered SQL Servers Get a Big Feature in VMware 5.5 http://sqlmag.com/blog/virtual-clustered-sql-servers-get-big-feature-vmware-55 <div class="node-body blog-body">There are a lot of folks out there who have SQL Server clusters setup under Hyper-V and VMware.
