  • Slide Script:In just a few clicks they can build some very nice-looking, interactive, professional reports using the powerful wizards in Report Builder 3.0 and the existing report elements from the Report Part Gallery.  What’s great about this is that users can take different elements that they like from multiple reports - regardless of the version of Reporting Services used to create those reports – and use them as building blocks for creating some very nice-looking, interactive, professional reports in just a few clicks…giving a whole new meaning to self-service reporting. This approach delivers greater efficiency to IT Professionals because it takes them out of the business of constantly modifying existing reports or creating similar reports for end users. Instead they can create some nicely designed report parts that can be used more broadly across the organization. This is a great segue to our final focus area for enabling Managed Self Service BI.
