Reporting Services Module
Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, integrated with SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008, is a powerful reporting interface that allows both database developers and end-users to build and publish reports and report templates to a public, shared, web-based reporting server. Reports can be built using Microsoft development tools, or with the built-in Report Builder application, a rich, web-based report building and templating application.
Once published, reporting interfaces are dynamic and enjoy real-time connection to the underlying database. Reports can also be e-mailed or otherwise stored as files on the server as a batch process.
By integrating the GeoRoom database with Reporting Services, the GeoRoom Reporting Services Module allows users to build their own view into their critical business process and business intelligence data. By providing a real-time reporting interface, large volumes of vital information can be sifted and condensed quickly into concise, actionable reports.
Data becomes accessible through any sorting, filtering or selection process required.
- Distributed Reporting
Reporting can become a distributed function so that individual departments or project teams can develop and publish their own reports to guide their work and decision-making.
- Transparency and Accountability
Geographically keyed data, entered into a GeoRoom workflow system, becomes accessible throughout the organization, providing transparency and accountability.
- Regulatory Compliance
Corporate compliance and governance is enhanced through the provision of reports specific to particular compliance and regulatory processes.
- Data Consolidation
Data from throughout the organization can be consolidated and distributed through the GeoRoom integration and workflow interface, reducing and preventing redundant data, and other frequent data integrity problems.
- Reduced Cost
The point-and-click report-building interface removes cost and burden on the IT department from the reporting process, allowing system administrators and database managers to focus on building value and reliability rather than building reports.
