In this chapter, Data Alerts, the new feature in SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services, was described. The hands-on exercises give a flavor of tasks that you can work on and the troubleshooting gives you a practical way of looking at the alerts you create and how they were processed. Since you create data alerts in SharePoint server, it is very important to configure the duo, SharePoint Server/Report Server, correctly.
In the next chapter, we will look at some of the programming interfaces available to work with Reporting Services in both modes. For Report Server Management in SharePoint integrated mode, Power Shell appears to be well positioned.
