CALL FOR USERS: SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services Implementers

Have you implemented SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services since it became available earlier this year? If so, we’d love to hear about your experiences, both good and bad.

Have you implemented SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services since it became available earlier this year? If so, we’d love to hear about your experiences, both good and bad.

MCP Magazine is compiling a major report on SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services and would like to interview IT pros who have deployed this software in production environments. We want to get a sense for how IT pros are using Reporting Services, find out if it's living up to their expectations, and ferret out some of the issues — such as ROI, TCO, staffing needs, licensing issues and so on — associated with its use.

In addition (we-re not asking for too much here, are we?) we'd also like to find out if Reporting Services is replacing existing end-user reporting and report lifecycle management products (e.g., Crystal Reports, Crystal Enterprise, Brio, & etc.), or mostly finding uptake in organizations that don't have existing reporting solutions.

If you would like to participate in this upcoming report, e-mail Stephen Swoyer, contributing editor, at [email protected] with your name, title, and company name and a short summary of the project and its current result.
