I Started in the IT industry working as a land surveyor with Unix ( Sun OS)  back in  late eightes ,   Then moved on to support Microsoft products first supporting Windows NT4 & Windows 95 ; on to qualify as a Microsoft Trainer;  Microsoft Certified system engineer  and Red Hat certified engineer.

The mix of both has served me well and  I  seemed happy in my Role. Untill I was lucky enought to attened a training course with A SQL MVP in early part of 2000. Since then I have grown in my appreciation of reporting services and what it can visually do for data.

I am currently pasionate aboout SSRS 2008 R2/ SQL Azure / SQL 2012  mapping 

This product combines the mapping from my early days in IT with passion I witnessed in a SQL MVP.


Corporate data is expensive to create, expensive to report. Adding free data sources and mapping can lift the simplest of reports to a stunning presentation.
