The Current State of Microsoft Reporting
With the announcement of the Reporting Roadmap in 2015, Microsoft defined the fundamental concepts of their reporting future. The basic principles in this "reporting manifesto" are: harmonized report types (paginated, mobile, interactive and Excel reports); cloud and on-premises feature parity; SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) are the on-premises report distribution platform; and unified mobile experience. SQL Server/SSRS 2016 was the first step into the reporting future; the story continued with SSRS 2017 and with Power BI ReportServer (PBIRS). This session will look at the current state of implementation. What was planned, what is already available today, and what are the missing points so far?
