Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 includes functionality to create and manage reports. However, when you integrate Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (SP2) database software, you can use SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (SSRS) to create richer reporting experiences. For example, an end user can view and manage SSRS reports completely from within a Windows SharePoint Services environment.
The following white papers are available to help you understand how SSRS and the SharePoint Products and Technologies can be integrated to provide additional business intelligence capabilities:
