SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) Masterclass Training Overview

SQL (Structured Query Language) is the world’s most widely used database language, utilised by a large variety of database systems for creating queries and manipulating data. SQL users are currently greatly in demand by the IT industry, and a level of understanding of how to create, publish, and manage reports using SQL techniques can put individuals at an advantage when planning to enter into this field of work, or when wishing to enhance their position within their current SQL-based working environment.

The SQL Training Server Reporting Services Masterclass course, with a duration of one day, will provide a thorough understanding of what makes up SQL Server Reporting Services, looking at its architecture and the terminology used. Delegates will learn how to use this server, and to create, design, utilise, secure, and manage reports. The first part of the course will introduce delegates to the Visual Studio and ReportBuilder 3.0 application for creating, saving, and issuing reports.

Delegates will also learn to add customisation to expressions and functions, and also learn how to format reports, implement shared data, and create parameter-based reports using Report Designer. Further, they will be taught how to deploy and manage Reporting Services, in order to save it to SSRS repository, alongside managing the security of reports through user accounts.
