Merge SSRS Report Output With PBRS Package Schedule

Imagine that the management team needs to receive 10 weekly status reports that include finances, inventory, sales etc. As usual, you have 10 subscriptions setup that deliver these reports. Everything is working just fine, then suddenly management decides that they no longer want to fuss with 10 different reports and 10 different emails. Instead, they want one document that encompasses all the weekly information they need. Great, now you have to write a whole new report, deploy it, and then set up the subscriptions all over again. Or do you? Using PBRS's Package Schedule, you can merge SSRS report output into a single PDF, text, or Excel file without the need to change the reports.

Auditing & Tracking for Crystal Reports Software: “Be in the Know”

Crystal Report Software is critical to serving, publishing, and scheduling reports.  For smaller firms, only a dozen or two reports need to be published at any given time. In larger firms, thousands of reports could be delivered every day or even every hour. With all of this information rapidly zipping about, how do you keep track of it all? An Excel spreadsheet would be an incorrect answer. Most Crystal Report software should have a built in auditing and tracking system designed to monitor all reporting activities. Knowing the current status of reports (success or failure), who or how those reports were triggered, as well as where those reports were published to are important components of a good auditing system.

2 Powerful Ways Business Intelligence Turns IT Frowns Upside Down

What do you think comes to mind when employees think about their company's IT Department? If they're anything like the rest of the corporate world, you might hear things like, “I can't do my job because our IT Department is too slow,” or “I can't get you that report because the IT Department hasn't had a chance to fix my computer.” Now, try to imagine what your IT Department may be saying in response to your company employee’s complaints. Perhaps it goes something like this: “Our to-do list is as long as The Great Wall of China,” or “Why on Earth can’t some of these minor things be handled by the employees themselves.” In all honestly, both sides have valid points. Let's take a closer look at how business intelligence, or BI, can turn your IT departments frowns to smiles.
