SSRS ( SQL Server Reporting Services )

SSRS Training: It stands for SQL server reporting services (SSRS). It is an BI Tool provided by Microsoft . It usually runs with Visual studio, in an application called as BIDS (Business Intelligence Design Studio). SSRS is a set of ready-made tools that helps you to create, deploy & manage reports. We can extend reporting functionality using C# and Visual Basics as an programming languages.  It helps you to create rich reports in the form of Tabular, graphical and interactive free forms from various data sources with rich data visualization in the form of charts, maps and sparklines. All the generated reports can be viewed via web browser. The SSRS allows the analysed report to be delivered via emails to a specified location in a automated way, it also allow to exporter the results in excel, PDF and word format.  SSRS provides an host of security, which is a powerful features, in order to control, who sees which reports.

SSRS Training Overview:

SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services is a server-based reporting platform that you can use to create and manage tabular, matrix, graphical, and free-form reports that contain data from relational and multidimensional data sources. The reports that you create can be viewed and managed over a World Wide Web-based connection. Reporting Services includes the following core components:

  • A complete set of tools that you can use to create, manage, and view reports.
  • A Report Server component that hosts and processes reports in a variety of formats. Output formats include HTML, PDF, TIFF, Excel, CSV, and more.
  • An API that allows developers to integrate or extend data and report processing in custom applications, or create custom tools to build and manage reports.

The reports that you build can be based on relational or multidimensional data from SQL Server, Analysis Services, Oracle, or any Microsoft .NET data provider such as ODBC or OLE DB. You can create tabular, matrix, and free-form reports. You can also create ad hoc reports that use predefined models and data sources.

Visually and functionally, the reports that you build in Reporting Services surpass traditional reporting by including interactive and Web-based features. Some examples of these features include drill-down reports that enable navigation through layers of data, parameterized reports that support content filtering at run time, free-form reports that support content in vertical, nested, and side-by-side layouts, links to Web-based content or resources, and secure, centralized access to reports over remote or local Web connections.

SSRS competes with Crystal Reports and other business intelligence tools, and is included in Express, Workgroup, Standard, and Enterprise editions of Microsoft SQL Server as an install option. Reporting Services was first released in 2004 as an add-on to SQL Server 2000. The second version was released as a part of SQL Server 2005 in November 2005. The latest version was released as part of SQL Server 2008 in August 2008.
