Complete Database Reporting Life Cycle Support:

SQL Server Reporting Services supports complete reporting life cycle, including:

Report authoring. Report developers can create reports to be published to the Report Server using Microsoft or other design tools that use Report Definition Language (RDL), an XML-based industry standard used to define reports.

Report management. Report definitions, folders, and resources are published and managed as a Web service. Managed reports can be executed either on demand or on a specified schedule, and are cached for consistency and performance. In SQL Server Reporting Services, administrators can use the Management Studio to organize reports and data sources, schedule report execution and delivery, and track reporting history.

Report delivery. SQL Server Reporting Services supports both on-demand (pull) and event-based (push) delivery of reports. Users can view reports in a Web-based format or in e-mail.

Report security. SQL Server Reporting Services implements a flexible, role-based security model to protect reports and reporting resources. The product includes extensible interfaces for integrating other security models as well.
