  12. 12. p. 121212Let’s talk a little about thearchitecture of SQL Server 2012Reporting Services– SSRS can be anything from a small“plaything” on one machine to a mission-critical enterprise reporting platform
  13. 13. p. 131313There are three components inplay:– The client• The one requesting the report– The report server• SSRS– The underlying data that the reports will bebuilt from• SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, etc
  14. 14. p. 141414
  15. 15. p. 151515This is traditional client-serverarchitecture– The client makes a request (via a url) of thereport server– The report server responds with the reportdata (or error/info)
  16. 16. p. 161616However, when the report servermakes the request to the datasource, it is also client-server– The client is the report server– The server is the data source– The report author/administrator can specifyhow to authenticate to the data source
  17. 17. p. 171717
  18. 18. p. 181818All client requests to the reportserver are made via URL– Typically, users are working withapplications that feature links to reports orhave the reports embedded• This way, users do not need to know URLs– SSRS has it’s own web server baked in
  19. 19. p. 191919The report server does much morethan “just” connecting to the datasource and creating the report– It also manages secure access to the reports,can schedule delivery for later times, canrender the report in multiple ways, andmore
  20. 20. p. 202020Course 174 is a full-length SSRS2012 course– Comprehensive coverage of:• Report design• Report creation• Dashboards• Deployment• Administration• SharePoint integration• … and much more!
