About this book

You don't have to be a database expert to create high-quality, high-impact reports with SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (SSRS). Whatever your reporting needs or your technical expertise, you can quickly become comfortable and productive with SSRS. From the simplest reports, to graphical and Web-deployed presentations, to report security and administration, everything you need to know, and how to do it efficiently and proficiently, is clearly explained in Pro SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services.

Since its release in 2004, SSRS has become one of the premier reporting environments because it comes free with SQL Server, is easy to use, and offers a comprehensive set of features that are matched by few competitors. With SQL Server 2005, SSRS is even more powerful and user friendly. If you have SQL Server 2005 and aren't using Reporting Services, it's time to start. Pro SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services will get you off to the fastest start and will quickly make you an SSRS expert.

Pro SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services carefully examines all SSRS features for designing, developing, deploying, and administering professional business reports in a variety of presentation styles and delivery formats. Intended for all levels of SSRS users, it provides in-depth explanations and detailed examples of the most important SSRS features, with practical guides, tips, best practices, and code based on complex real-world reporting requirements. It covers all of the new functionality of SSRS 2005, including the new management and business intelligence (BI) development studios as well as new report viewer controls and end-user reporting tools. The emphasis throughout is on understanding what SSRS can do and learning the most effective techniques for exploiting its power.

Pro SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services introduces the SSRS architecture and tools, but it also explores many advanced features, including: high-performance queries; the Report Definition Language standard; rendering reports in HTML, XML, PDF, and Excel; report administration and security; building custom .NET applications with SSRS; and integrating SSRS with Analysis Services and other BI tools and products.

The authors are experienced professionals in medical business reporting, which is subject to rigorous HIPAA regulations and strict security. They take a hard, critical look at how SSRS can provide exactly what is needed to deliver enterprise-level reports that satisfy stringent business and legal requirements. Their code examples are based on real-world demands for versatile, dynamic, incisive information delivery that truly enhances business decision-making.

Anyone who needs to create, manage, or distribute any kind of business information can quickly become an SSRS expert with Pro SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services!
