This weeks SQL Data Partners podcast, Episode 55, is on (SSRS) Reporting Services Changes in SQL 2016. This episode features Jessica Moss, and the discussion is on some of the great new features in SSRS 2016.
One of the key take-aways from the session is how Microsoft has broken the report groups into 4 categories.
- Paginated – Like what we are used to with older SSRS. Picture perfect page based reports.
- Interactive reports – the analytical to dig in to answer a question.
- Mobile reports – quick glance at things for a high level KPI.
- Analytical reports and charts – excel.
With no major changes top SSRS from SQL 2008 to SQL Server 2014, the enhancements to SSRS 2016 are a very welcome improvement. Also in SQL Server 2016 – SSDT has been incorporated with the business intelligence version of Visual Studio. You download one set of tools that gives you all the database and business intelligence tools.
