The primary purpose of the Microsoft SQL server is to store and retrieve data, which can then be requested by other software applications from either the same computer or any other computer running across the same network. The benefits of a SLQ service for a business, web site or eCommerce site are numerous, helping organizations quickly access and share important insights about customers, accounting, and more. The primary way this is achieved is through SQL server reporting services.
What are SQL Server Reporting Services?
Reporting services are comprised of a number of ready-to-use tools for the creation, management, and delivery of reports. The data sources can be relational, multi-dimensional, or XML-based in nature; and reports can be tabular, graphical, interactive, or free-form. These reports can then be shared across the server, often accompanied by rich visualization tools like charts, maps, or graphs. Strategies can then be implemented based on the near-instantaneous exploration of data.
SQL Server Reporting Services and SharePoint Technology
SQL reporting services can easily be synchronized with SharePoint, a web application that allows for the storage of centralized data. When you sync up SQL reporting with SharePoint, you can combine the wealth of data captured by SQL reporting services with the powerful collaboration features of SharePoint. The benefits of this integration are shared storage, shared security, and same-site access for all business documents. You can also use SharePoint’s features to check reports in and out for collaboration, use SharePoint alerts to find out whether an item has changed, and customize the Report Viewer Web within the application.
The data that can be captured and stored by SQL server reporting will lead to fast, information-based decision-making about accounting, product ordering, customer service, and more.
