SQL-RD

Advanced automation for SQL server reporting services

3.6/5 (5 reviews)

SQL-RD Overview

SQL-RD is an automation tool for business intelligence professionals and decision makers within any size organization who are looking to automate the generation and delivery of their Microsoft SQL server reporting services (SSRS) reports. The platform includes flexible scheduling, exporting, distributing and delivering features for sales reports, operational reports, invoices, and other SSRS outputs.

SQL-RD enables users to set up schedules to run reports at any preferred frequency. Reports can be outputted in various formats including Word, Excel, Acrobat, HTML, RTF, text format, and more, and are automatically delivered to any email, folder, printer, fax, Sharepoint, DropBox FTP or SFTP. Reports can be set to run at a specific date and time, and hourly, weekly, monthly, or custom frequencies.

Real-time monitoring and event triggers help professionals respond to business needs based on events rather than a date. Reports are fired off if for example, a file is modified, a database value is present, an email is received, or a window is open. Dynamic and data driven schedule processes help find parameter values within the database, and generate unique reports for each one.

SQL-RD’s pre and post delivery automation enables the generation of custom actions to run programs, enter values in a database, modify files, and more. Automation schedules can also be used for general business process automation, without running reports. The platform’s intuitive interface facilitates tasks such as defining and scheduling report packages, and includes copy-and-paste support for the creation of complex distribution schedules.

Pros

This software has many features and functions. You can do just about anything. You can export data in many different formats or even straight to drop box if you wanted. The neat thing is you can automate data directly with Microsoft SQL server reporting services.

Cons

The automatic scheduled reporting process is a bit complex and customization of dashboard, needs to be more user-friendly
It could even get a little pricey for mid to large size companies, so be careful.
