Hi,

As report model project is being deprecated in ss2012 - what are the alternatives available for us.

we have highly unstructured database (highly normalised and transactional in nature)

Tabular model is not an option - have huge data can't keep that in-memory
OLAP Cube is not an option because data is not dimensional in nature

Thanks in advance

So far you have stated what the data isn't, can you shed a light on what it is?

I cannot see or know your situation unless you share it, highly normalized or not does not mount to anything substantial.
By the way, a friendly advice, this kind of respond is not going to get you anywhere. My question was simply for more details on you problem.

Alright.. Lets follow it up with some "substantial" details -
our data contains tables which have cyclic dependency, there are transaction and master tables but its not necessary that master tables doesn't contain transactional data the entire DB is Oracle.
we get data like - 5 Million rows daily on an avg.

Reports are built directly on these tables by applying outer joins, named calculations; there are no aggregate tables present neither it is required in the reports also.

All reporting is operational (NOT ANALYTICAL) so we'd created report models by putting those outer joins and named calc. which in tern being used by biz users for their reporting or rather daily tasks and all

Now that this has been deprecated in 2012 what are the options available (if any)

I hope I get some good information/ advice on my problem.

TY

Thanks for the info
First thought, although the Report Model is depreciated (Breaking change), one can still run and develop using BIDS (2K8), at least up to and including 2014, SSDT 2012-14 do not have any RM capabilities. I do not know what would be the best alternative but I'll look into it and keep you advised.
