Book: Reporting with Microsoft SQL Server 2012

I am happy to say I have published my first book!  It is called Reporting with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (order).  Much thanks goes to my co-author and friend Bill Anton.  Below is a brief overview or check out the listing on the Packt Publishing site for a sample chapter and the table of contents.

MyBook

Reporting with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 will cover all the features of SSRS and Power View and will provide a step-by-step lab activity to help you develop reports very quickly.

Starting with the difference between standard and self-service reporting, this book covers the main features and functionality offered in SQL Server Reporting Services 2012 including a breakdown of the report components, development experience, extensibility, and security. You will also learn to set up and use Power View within Excel and SharePoint and connect to a tabular model as well as a multidimensional model. The book provides real-life reporting scenarios that help to clarify when those scenarios are discussing standard reporting, in which case SSRS is the best choice, and when they are discussing self-service reporting, in which case Power View is the best choice.

This book will have you creating reports in SSRS and Power View in no time!
