Reports on the Go: SSRS 2016 Mobile Reporting


Reports on the Go: SSRS 2016 Mobile Reporting

SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services added reporting functionality with a new report type of Mobile. Mobile reports is the new name for the DataZen reports that was a separate reporting solution before Microsoft acquired DataZen a few years ago. Now with SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services the Mobile report type has been integrated into the platform and can be delivered using the SSRS data sources and datasets you have already developed for Paginated reports. In this session we will walkthrough how to create/update Mobile reports using the SSRS 2016 Mobile Report Publisher application and how the Mobile reports are delivered through the new SSRS Web Portal and apps for iOS/Android/Windows. We will also cover the pluses and minuses of developing new Mobile reports with Power BI also working on mobile platforms. There will be plenty of demos and time for questions in this session.

Steve is currently a DW/BI Engineer III with National CineMedia (NCM) and has experience in manufacturing, retail, charities, telecommunications and financial services organizations using the full Microsoft BI stack.
