For years, SQL Server Reporting Services chugged along with very few updates. Although it remained a reliable and popular reporting tool, the feature set largely remained unchanged for a decade. With the most recent two major editions (2016 and the upcoming 2017), everything changed. Microsoft delivered a brand new SSRS, instantly transforming Reporting Services from a spartan reporting tool to a rich portal for at-a-glance metrics. No longer do you have to purchase a third-party reporting tool; everything you need is right here!

This session will review and demonstrate the newly-remodeled SQL Server Reporting Services. We'll walk through the essential changes in SSRS, from the all-new reporting portal to the new visualizations. We'll also discuss the SSRS ecosystem and how it fits together with mobile reports and its recent integration with PowerBI.
