|Microsoft Philippines locally launched SQL Server Reporting Services. Reporting Services provides companies with a powerful new reporting tool that can increase business insight by providing real-time information from any data source to any device. As a result, employees at every level will have better access to information that will increase their ability to make critical decisions and provide more business value to their company.
The addition of Reporting Services makes SQL Server the single most comprehensive data management and business intelligence (BI) platform on the market, with integrated analytics that include online analytical processing; data mining; data warehousing; extract, transform and load tools; and reporting functionality. This integrated, end-to-end approach helps companies make better decisions faster while lowering their total cost of ownership.
"Reporting Services is an enterprise-level reporting solution that is more affordable than competitive solutions in the marketplace today. It builds on the success of SQL Server 2000 to provide an integrated and scalable solution whether it is used to send interactive reports to five or 50,000 subscribers," said Antonio "TJ" Javier, Microsoft Philippines Managing Director. "With Reporting Services, our customers benefit from a cost-effective, easy-to-use reporting solution that enables them to better leverage data from their disparate systems for smarter business decisions."
SQL Server 2000 offers a broad business intelligence platform that enables customers and partners to easily build custom business intelligence applications. This flexibility and interoperability provide users with powerful business intelligence solutions tailored to their specific needs. ChinaTrust Commercial Bank, San Miguel Corp., Jollibee, Johnson and Johnson, ABS-CBN, Globe Telecoms, and Digitel have already started to implement Reporting Services solutions.
"Reporting Services maximizes our storehouse of data, and helps raise our competitive edge in a fast-paced industry," said Macy Manalang, ChinaTrust's Assitant Vice President for I.T. "Reporting Services gives a more consistent look and feel to our reports. It also integrates seamlessly with other programs and databases -a very cost-effective feature. Our managers now have the capacity to use the reports available to them to make specialized analyses of their various systems and processes.
||"SQL Server Reporting Services ensures the ease of data retrieval and, at the same time, avoid anomalous data," said Eric Capucao, Manager for Strategic Solutions in San Miguel Information Technology Systems, a subsidiary of San Miguel Corp. "It allows real-time data editing, assuring updated information for timely and accurate business decision-making."
Reporting Services provides an open and extensible reporting platform industry partners can use to broaden their offerings without investing in building reporting infrastructure.
A valid SQL Server 2000 license is required for each server on which Reporting Services is deployed. It is available in nine languages including traditional and simplified Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.
