3 What are Reporting Services?
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services accelerates report creation, facilitates sharing and collaboration, and provides a complete platform to enable organizations to deliver relevant information across the entire enterprise. SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) is a server-based report generation software system. It can be used to prepare and deliver a variety of interactive and printed reports. It is accessible and administered via a web interface. Included in Developer, Standard, and Enterprise editions of MS SQL Server Reports are created in RDL (and XML based format) Reports can be generated out to many MS document formats or directly to a browser screen, PDF and Image format Design Tools are included with SQL install or licenced under the SQL EULA Report Builder 3.0 (downloadable) SQL Server BI Development Studio

4 SSRS Integration Maximizer Web Access Maximizer Desktop
This integration creates a number of default reports that users can access from the Reports page in Maximizer Web Access. Reporting Services is installed with Maximizer, allowing users to access reports hosted by SQL Server Reporting Services through the Reports menu in Maximizer.

5 SSRS – The good and the bad
Pros Cons Easy to use design tools but can also develop complex reports Advanced data layouts such as combined table and graphical view (Tablix) User level report subscriptions User access to report design using Models and Part Gallery Integrate with SharePoint Services Additional install steps for SQL and Maximizer Cannot run a report against the current list – better for analytical style reports or when using user prompts Less pre-created reports than Crystal Reports
