Did You Mean Enterprise Reporting or Self-Service BI?

While I was at DevIntersection 2017 this last week, I got into many wonderful and thoughtful conversations about ActiveReports and the business cases that existing customers use it for and what prospects are considering it for. The business requirements varied drastically from healthcare-targeted products with end users as nurses to manufacturing and the food industry. Each conversation was unique but similar at the same time. Unique in the sense that the business requirements were very different and the type and amount of data that was managed by the reports was quite varied. However, there was a fundamental undertone of the two ecosystems of reporting that seem to be trending.

What's New in ActiveReports 11 Service Pack 2?

Usually, we save major new features for major version releases, and just fix issues and tweak things in service packs. But this time, we added a lot of features and enhancements to both ActiveReports Developer and ActiveReports Server. Plus we added a major feature to ActiveReports Server: a sleek new Web Designer. It is easy enough for newbies to use, but with all of the advanced features and RDL reports that developers and experienced report authors want. Read on to see what else we've included.

The New Web-Based End User Designer

ActiveReports Server has always had a web designer for business users. We created the web designer to enable end users to build reports from scratch or modify existing reports using nothing more than a browser. We presumed that these end users knew little to nothing about databases and query languages.

When the report involves numbers (either shown in a table or a chart), you can use this feature to offer additional information about a specific data point in the series: the methodology, for instance, or summary values.

Visual Studio 2017 Support

Update: We've released Service Pack 1. You can download it here:
