New life for Reporting Services: what is up in 2016 (200)

Speaker: Andrea Martorana Tusa

At 2015 PASS Summit, Microsoft announced a roadmap to harmonize and standardize its BI reporting solutions into one unique hybrid scenario. Reporting Services will play a crucial role in this new architecture. Starting from 2016 release, Reporting Services will be the Microsoft’s on-premises solution for BI report delivery, meaning that it will host on-premises standard report as well as mobile report as well as Power BI Desktop report. To achieve this goal Reporting Services has been completely revisited and redesigned. Rendering engine has been rewritten in HTML5 to support every modern browser. Now the product is fully-featured and ready to be tested. During the session, you will see the brand new portal supporting both paginated and mobile reports, and you learn how to create dataset and data sources, how to pin charts to Power BI dashboards, how to position report parameters the way you want, how to export reports to PowerPoint, and many other exciting outlines.
