Reporting in SQL Server 2008

Reporting Services has had a major overhaul in SQL Server 2008. At the backend the architecture has been completely changed to make it faster and easier to manage. A new data grid, tablix, allows for the design of more complicated reports and the charting has also been significantly improved. The best news for developers and DBA's is the new report designer tool which can be used by end users and IT professionals alike to get access to all of the functionality of reporting services from an office style application.

    I am a technical evangelsit at Microsoft specialising in business intelligecne and data management. I got interested in large databases while at HM Customs in the nineties as part of the move to intelligence led resourcing, but another inititive namely outsourcing meant that my last ten years have been in the private sector working for a number of gold partners, before joining Microsoft last July. I got into SQL Server in v6 and have used this platform almost exclusively since then for a wide variety of clients from tiny breweries to global banks.
