SSRS Is A Step In The Right Direction, But Is There Something More?

In the “good old days” merely having technology gave firms an edge over their competitors. This is no longer the case. In today’s business world, technology is readily available and less costly than ever before. Even the smallest companies can afford to have technology at their disposal. This makes simply possessing technology not enough to stand above the pack. You are going have to do something more.

The Best Benefits Of Automating SSRS Reports With SQL-RD

SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) is a Business Intelligence tool which provides a great way to analyze your company’s data. You can share this analysis in the form of a report with the decision makers in your organization. However, when you need to share the SSRS reports with a large group of people, manually scheduling them can be a nightmare. If clients, vendors, or operations managers need the SSRS reports customized with various parameters, it helps to automate the SSRS reports.

Automated Reporting For SQL Server - What's the Point?

Why should you bother employing automated reporting for SQL Server? Today’s world is dominated by the notion of “self-serve business intelligence.” Users want their data immediately and have the desire to run the reports the way they want, manipulate the data as they choose, and present the information in the way they think is best. Waiting on an administrator to send a report, or an automated system to place the report in their SharePoint directory is just too time consuming and can present some possible security risks.

What To Look For In An SSRS Replacement

Are you ready for an SSRS replacement? You have plenty of options, but keep in mind that not all products provide the same benefits or results. Since any business intelligence solution is ultimately about results, it’s essential to review a potential replacement for your SSRS with the same scrutiny you used to choose your primary BI software. The two most critical elements you should look for are automation and access.

Do You Know How To Schedule SSRS Conditional Subscriptions?

We have published a number of guides for scheduling SSRS reports to email, or data driving SSRS reports. Today let’s review how to schedule SSRS conditional subscriptions. Using  Event Based Schedules in SQL-RD, you can build complex workflows that can trigger RS reports based on events or conditions, for example database record has changed; email has been received; file has been updated, etc. You can monitor for these conditions at certain intervals, or in real-time. If these conditions are met, then it will run specified reports and even BPM tasks. Using SQL-RD to schedule SSRS conditional subscriptions is actually quite easy. The real challenge is working through exactly how to structure the schedule and the tasks.
