Sponsored by Slalom Consulting

This Microsoft PASS BI event will present and discuss advanced concepts and techniques for SSRS development.   The event will start with a quick refresher on how to create SSRS reports against a relational DB or against an OLAP cube. After that, we will discuss techniques for creating creating table/metadata driven SSRS reports that are easier to recreate and maintain than your traditional SSRS report. The presentation will include reusable SSRS metadata scripts that can be used for developing and maintaining your SSRS report environment. We'll also cover how to utilize the same principles in your SSIS environment.
