Discover how to create, manage, and deliver interactive reports—not just to print, but to dynamically explore enterprise-level data—with Reporting Services in SQL Server. In this course, author Simon Allardice concentrates on using Report Builder to build and format reports from a variety of data sources, but also shows how to perform basic administration tasks such as granting user access and organizing reports in the Report Manager. Plus, learn how to add interactive sorting and filtering functionality to your reports, and create column and pie charts to better express your data.

(music playing) Hi! I am Simon Allardice and welcome to SQL Server Reporting Services in Depth. In this course I am going to show you how to make the most of Reporting Services, the part of Microsoft's flagship SQL server database platform that deals not with storing data, but with presenting that data with creating reports. We will begin by seeing just what SQL Server Reporting Services can do and what you need to get started. We will spend most of our time actually creating these reports using the authoring tools available. Starting with creating basic reports, we will then cover a bunch of different ways to transform and manipulate your data from the raw state in the database into something much more presentable in your reports.
We'll then add interactivity and make these reports more complex and graphical, adding visualizations of the data including maps, charts, data bars, and Sparklines. This is what SQL Server Reporting Services is all about: business intelligence; taking the day do you already have and making it clear, making it understandable, making it visual, being able to explore it a dozen different ways to better understand what it can tell you. Let's get started.
