My Presentation – 2:45 PM Introduction to SQL Server Reporting Services

SQL Server Reporting Services is a fundamental part of Microsoft’s Business Intelligence suite of products which as its name suggests provides a centralized robust reporting solution for organizations. Using a familiar development environment we can create static and interactive reports that can be delivered to consumers in a variety of ways. In this introductory session, I will cover topics like:

  • What is reporting services and what can it be used for?
  • New Features included in 2008 R2
  • Architectural Overview
  • Demonstrations to cover the entire process of developing, deploying and rendering reports using the built in Report Manager and URL Access

I look forward to seeing you all next month!
