Reporting Services
One of the most vital aspects of business intelligence is reporting. Organizations rely on reporting engines to deliver
key information in a timely fashion. These engines need to allow users to create and deliver a variety of reports
based on customer requirements. SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services (SSRS) provides a complete range of tools
and services to meet those customer requirements.
If you’ve designed reports using any version of SSRS, you’ll probably be familiar with some of the topics.
However, if you are new to SSRS 2012, we recommend you read the overview of SSRS beginning at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms159106(v=sql.110).aspx .
