Microsoft SQL Server MVP
Even with all the options for self-service Business Intelligence, SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) remains a popular reporting tool in application development environments.
In this session, I'll present more than a dozen different topics and let attendees select which topics to cover. Everything from sparklines to heat maps, from Tablix-drilldown reports to advanced charts, from performance gauges to subreport/drilldown reports to new page/group control features in R2....and even topics like data-driven subscriptions, reports against OLAP cubes, and deploying to SharePoint. Since no presentation can cover all the topics, the audience will decide which to cover.
You will learn:
- About advanced SSRS features "in action", as implemented in actual SSRS client applications
- The implementation of mass-automated report delivery of data driven subscriptions in SSRS (and also see .NET code used in SSIS scripts for customized delivery of reports)
- A general understanding of Microsoft's current and future offerings for SSRS in the Cloud
