SSRS From the Ground Up - Develop my understanding and skillset
I'm a report builder by trade - I've been building reports in BO, MS Access and SSRS for 16 years. In each job/project I've had I've used the final product - SQL database and SSRS server and I've built reports without doing any Administration.
I have a new venture that has no infrastructure. There will be a SQL database server with corporate data but there is no SSRS server. I want to be prepared for this so I'm not walking around asking for help but instead creating reports right off the bat.
I understand the concepts of ETL and SSIS but I don't know how to administer these. I don't know if they are needed for this project. But I need to know the steps needed that allow SSRS reports to run.
Is there a book that you experts can suggest that goes higher level than creating SSRS reports?
Any suggestions for my research and knowledge are greatly appreciated!
