Building Reports Using Report Builder
Up until now, we’ve dealt with an awful lot of information in this book. We’ve performed a new installation of SQL Server R Services, installed R Tools for Visual Studio, configured Reporting Services, and installed and configured Report Builder. We learned quite a bit about R and how it works and we generally got a lot of experience with writing code in general. If you have gotten this far, nice work! This is really sort of advanced stuff, since it’s basically brand-new functionality. It’s pretty safe to assume that R will continue to be offered as part of SQL Server for future releases, so it’s best to go ahead and get acquainted with it now instead of having to deal with the learning curve later.
