You then don't need to worry about getting 'complex' with anything. It has cloud options and can cope with multiple data sources.

Also remember that in most cases, sql will be a lot more efficient at creating calculated values
So if you need a calculated value (ex. Price+Quantity), create that field in SQL, then simply display this in the report...
Then benefit here is that now this calculated value is in the source, ...hence you don't need a report just to see the "total Price"
