Mobile Reporting Session Recap

I would like to thank everyone who took the time to attend our 'Breakfast with Experts' event earlier this week.

During the first part of the event – Mobile Reporting, attendees were able to learn about the new and improved features of Reporting Services 2016 and how it can be used with Power BI for either cloud or on-premises environments. I also conducted a live demo showcasing Microsoft SQL Server Mobile Report Publisher and how it can be used to build sample reports with two data sets for a tablet and mobile phone. Attendees were then able to view sample reports via my Windows Phone Power BI application to get a clear idea of the end-user mobile experience.

If you are interested in learning more about Reporting Services 2016 and Mobile Reporting then check out the new Wrox book - Professional Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services and Mobile Reports.

Professional Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services and Mobile Reports

A few weeks ago, Wrox Publishers released their book entitled Professional Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services and Mobile Reports written by Paul Turley (B|T), an independent BI consultant and trainer, owner of Intelligent Business LLC and Mentor for SolidQ.

Paul asked me to be the technical editor for this book based on our previous collaboration for the 2012 version. I know that he took a lot of time and effort to ensure that this book delivered useful and relevant information for anyone looking to upgrade or leverage Reporting Services 2016 in their production environment.

Reviewing twenty-two (22) chapters while dealing with changes from SQL Server 2016 RC3 to RTM was definitely a challenge but it was also a great learning experience. I am greatly appreciative of this opportunity that Paul and Wrox has given me and I look forward to future collaborations with them.
