For over 12 years, Brian Larson, SCS’ Chief Creative Officer, has been dedicated to helping educate those in the technical field about SSRS and Microsoft BI tools. We are excited to announce the publication of Brian’s most recent books:
- Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services This fifth edition, weighing in at 848 pages, covers the complete process of building and distributing reports and explains how to maximize all of the powerful, integrated SSRS capabilities. This edition adds coverage of the new Mobile Report Publisher used to create data visualizations tailored to tablet and smartphone footprints. A detailed case study of an intergalactic package delivery service makes the learning practical and fun all at the same time.
- Delivering Business Intelligence with Microsoft SQL Server 2016 This fourth edition takes you through the design and implementation of a business intelligence solution using the Microsoft toolset. It includes an in-depth look at the Tabular model and its recent enhancements along with coverage of Power BI and its DAX Language.
