Struttura del Corso

MODULE 1: Introduction to Reporting Services

This module introduces Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, its components, and the tools used to work with it.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Give a context for Reporting Services

Describe the components of Reporting Services

Explain Reporting Services tools

Exploring reports

Reporting services configuration

Lab : Exploring reporting services

MODULE 2: Reporting Services Data Sources

Almost every report that you publish by using SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) will be built using data that’s obtained from one or more source systems. This lesson explains how to configure SSRS to interact with source data systems by working with data sources.


After completing this module, you will be able to:

Describe Dta Sources

Work with Connection Strings

Describe Datasets

Configuring Data access with Report Builder

Configuring Data access with Report Designer

Lab : Configuring data access with report builder

Lab : Configuring data access with report designer

MODULE 3: Creating Paginated Reports

Now that you have learned about BI and data modelling, and how to access data from Report Designer and Report Builder, you need to learn how to create reports. 

This module shows you how to create different types of reports in both applications, in addition to using the Report Wizard.


After completing this module, you will be able to:

Create a report with the report wizard

Create a report using report builder or report designer

Publish a report to reporting services

Lab : Creating reports

MODULE 4: Working with Reporting Services Data

It is common for business requirements to change regarding the information they need and how they want data presented. On viewing a detailed report, senior management might ask for higher level, summarized, or filtered versions of the same report. 

Report Builder and Report Designer support these scenarios via filtering, sorting, drilldowns, grouping and the parameterizing of reports. In this module, you will see how to use filters and parameters to make reports more dynamic and useful to business users.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Filter Data in Reports

Use Parameters in reports

Implementing report filters and parameters

Using parameters in report designer

Using parameters in report builder

Lab : Create a parameterized report

MODULE 5: Visualizing Data with Report Services

As the amount of data being generated continues to grow, the need to make sense of its meaning increases. 

You use data visualization to make data easier to understand, and faster to interpret. Data visualizations highlight comparisons, show trends, and convey scale much faster than a table of numbers could. The detail is important, but visualizations are a highly effective way of conveying meaning and insights quickly and accurately.


After completing this module, you will be able to:

Format data in reports

Use images and charts in your reports

Use databars, sparklines, indicators, gauges, and maps in reports.

Explain what a KPI is and how it’s used

Report designer

Report builder

Lab : Manage formatting

MODULE 6: Summarizing Report Data

As the amount of data we need to deal with increases, so does the requirement to manage data by grouping and summarizing. 

In this module, you will learn how to create group structures, summarize data, and provide interactivity in your reports, so that users see the level of detail or summary that they need.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Group and sort data in reports in report builder

Group and sort data in reports in report designer

Create report sub-sections

Use drill down and drill through

Lab : Summarizing report data

MODULE 7: Sharing Reporting Services Reports

When you have published a Reporting Services report, users can view the report interactively. In some situations, it can be advantageous to run reports automatically, either to improve performance through caching and snapshots, or to deliver reports to users—by using e-mail or other mechanisms. 

To run reports automatically, you need to understand how Reporting Services manages scheduling. This module covers report scheduling, caching and the report life cycle, and automatic subscription and delivery of reports.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Explain schedules

Describe and configure report caching, report snapshots, and report comments

Configure report subscriptions

Lab : Sharing reporting services reports

MODULE 8: Administering Reporting Services

System administrators take responsibility for the configuration and day-to-day operations of IT systems. 

In SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), administrative tasks include the configuration of the web portal and web service, branding the web portal, and ensuring that access to sensitive reports is carefully controlled. Administrators also monitor and optimize performance.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Secure access to reports by using authentication, permissions, and SSL encryption

Use report services configuration manager to reconfigure SSRS servers

Monitor and optimize the performance of SSRS on a given set of server hardware

Authorize access to reports

Web portal branding

Lab : Administering reporting services

MODULE 9: Extending and Integrating Reporting Services

Although Reporting Services is a powerful tool, its built-in capabilities might not always meet your needs. 

This module covers the methods for extending the functionality of Reporting Services with expressions and custom code. 

You will also learn about the methods for working with Reporting Services programmatically, and integrating Reporting Services reports into other applications.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Work with expressions and embedded code

Extend reporting services functionality with external assemblies

Integrate reporting services with other software

Custom code – report designer

Custom code – report builder

URL access

Lab : Extending and integrating reporting services

MODULE 10: Introduction to Mobile Reports

This module introduces the design and publication of reports that are intended for consumption on mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. 

Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) includes support for mobile reports, although the tools that are used to design and publish mobile reports are different to the tools used for the paginated reports discussed in the earlier modules of this course.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Describe considerations for mobile reports

Prepare data for publication in mobile reports

Use SQL Server mobile report publisher to create mobile reports

Format data for a mobile report

Create a mobile report

Create KPIs

Lab : Introduction to mobile reports

MODULE 11: Developing Mobile Reports

In this module, you will learn about the element types that you can add to your Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services mobile reports. 

You will also learn about working with dataset parameters, and how to add drillthrough actions to your reports.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Describe how to design and publish mobile reports

Explain how to drillthrough from mobile reports

Add a drillthrough to a custom URL

Add a dataset with parameters

Design a mobile report

Publish a mobile report

Lab : Developing mobile reports
