In this chapter, I gave a brief introduction to the use and of Reporting Services. One advantage is that it is a web-based reporting solution that does not require the presence of Dynamics NAV on the local machine. You can harvest and present information from multiple data sources, databases, companies, and so on. Reporting services is completely free: no license cost is involved.
Before you spend a big budget on third-party BI or reporting tools, I recommend a look at what Reporting Services can offer you, out of the box.
In the next chapter, I will present different ways to create charts in the Dynamics NAV application.
