In many environments, presentations are always offered in PowerPoint format. This is true even if the recipients will receive the deck via email, rather than viewing it in a meeting.

For report writers and deck assemblers, this has presented a paint point. Why? Because, if your information is in an SSRS report, it is necessary to cut and paste report outputs into PowerPoint decks.

There are additional exciting improvements to SSRS coming --

  • mobile capabilities
  • portals/dashboards
  • integration with Power BI

Note, some features are only available in either native or integrated mode, but not both at this time.

Interested?  Here are a few articles with additional detail:
