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 Effective Data Visualization - The Eradication of Ruler Reports http://sqlmag.com/reporting/effective-data-visualization-eradication-ruler-reports <div class="node-body article-body"><h2>Effective Data Visualization &ndash; The Eradication of Ruler Reports</h2> <p>I once had an efficiency consultant tell me that he went into an office looking for a ruler left out on someone&rsquo;s desk. This was a sure sign that person received one or more reports that were so large and so complex, it was necessary to lay a ruler across the report in order to read it properly. These &ldquo;ruler reports&rdquo; were the first candidates to be redesigned and replaced.</p></div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/reporting/effective-data-visualization-eradication-ruler-reports" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/reporting/effective-data-visualization-eradication-ruler-reports#comments Reporting data visualization guidelines Thu, 30 Apr 2015 20:42:00 +0000 24071 at http://sqlmag.com Introducing Microsoft Power Map http://sqlmag.com/reporting/introducing-microsoft-power-map <div class="field-deck"> Visualize geographic information using 2D and 3D maps </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft's latest self-service business intelligence tool helps users visualize geographic information using 2D and 3D maps.</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/reporting/introducing-microsoft-power-map" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/reporting/introducing-microsoft-power-map#comments Analysis Reporting 2D maps 3D maps Power Map self-service business intelligence Wed, 23 Apr 2014 04:00:00 +0000 17371 at http://sqlmag.com SQL Server Spotlight: Forerunner Software CEO and Founder, Jason Carlson http://sqlmag.com/sql-server-reporting-services/sql-server-spotlight-forerunner-software-ceo-and-founder-jason-carlson <div class="node-body article-body">Jason Carlson, CEO and founder of Forerunner Software, provides insights into the state of the SQL Server industry, after having worked at Microsoft for 15 years.</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/sql-server-reporting-services/sql-server-spotlight-forerunner-software-ceo-and-founder-jason-carlson" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/sql-server-reporting-services/sql-server-spotlight-forerunner-software-ceo-and-founder-jason-carlson#comments Analysis Reporting SQL Server Reporting Services SQL Server Forerunner Software Jason Carlson Microsoft SQL Server Mobilizer 2.0 Forerunner Software Office 365 SharePoint SQL Server 2014 SQL Server Reporting Services Fri, 18 Apr 2014 12:30:00 +0000 17281 at http://sqlmag.com Best SQL Server Business Intelligence & Reporting Product of 2013 http://sqlmag.com/reporting/best-sql-server-business-intelligence-reporting-product-2013 <div class="node-body article-body">Combit's List & Label wins the 2013 SQL Server Pro Community Choice Award for Best Business Intelligence & Reporting Product.</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/reporting/best-sql-server-business-intelligence-reporting-product-2013" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/reporting/best-sql-server-business-intelligence-reporting-product-2013#comments Reporting SQL Server Business Intelligence Awards Business Intelligence combit List & Label products reporting SQL Server Tue, 15 Oct 2013 04:00:00 +0000 14731 at http://sqlmag.com Attunity Replicate Now Includes New Data Warehousing Enhancements http://sqlmag.com/analysis/attunity-replicate-now-includes-new-data-warehousing-enhancements <div class="node-body article-body">The latest version of Attunity Replicate now offers more data warehousing capabilities for Microsoft SQL Server 2012.</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/analysis/attunity-replicate-now-includes-new-data-warehousing-enhancements" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/analysis/attunity-replicate-now-includes-new-data-warehousing-enhancements#comments Analysis Reporting Attunity Replicate attunity turbostream data warehousing tool Microsoft SQL Server 2012 data warehousing Mon, 20 May 2013 12:01:00 +0000 12721 at http://sqlmag.com Consolidate Data on Executed SSRS Reports for Easy Querying http://sqlmag.com/sql-server-reporting-services/consolidate-data-executed-ssrs-reports-easy-querying <div class="field-byline"> Rodney Landrum </div> <div class="field-deck"> Using an SSIS package makes it simple </div> <div class="node-body article-body">By using a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package to pull catalog and execution log data from SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) instances into a central repository, you can easily run queries to obtain report statistics.</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/sql-server-reporting-services/consolidate-data-executed-ssrs-reports-easy-querying" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/sql-server-reporting-services/consolidate-data-executed-ssrs-reports-easy-querying#comments Reporting SQL Server Reporting Services Systems Management SQL Server Client Management Data management Microsoft SQL Server relational database management systems Reporting SQL Server SQL Server Integration Services SQL Server Reporting Services Systems Management Technology_Internet Windows Server System Fri, 14 Dec 2012 17:00:00 +0000 9106 at http://sqlmag.com In-Memory or Live Reporting: Which is Better For SQL Server?
