SQL Server Reporting Services – Awakens!

SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) 2016 incorporates a new report type: Mobile Reports, based on Datazen technology, which Microsoft acquired in April 2015. This allows you to create mobile-optimized BI reports using charts, gauges, maps and grids bound with Excel data or SSRS shared datasets.

Also, Microsoft recently announced that SSRS is available as two products, SQL Server Reporting services and Report Server. The second product allows you to publish Power BI reports on-premises. Penny will compare these two SSRS products, discuss their availability, and the future of SSRS SharePoint integrated mode.

Penny using SSRS tools, will demonstrate the ease of creating mobile reports and why you should get your IT department to install this SSRS. The demo is aimed at the business user. She will also discuss the new licensing models for the two versions of SSRS.
