Now that you have been introduced to all the capabilities of Reporting Services, I hope you are ready to dive in and make it work for you. In the next chapter we will cover the installation and set up of Reporting Services. If Reporting Services has already been installed for you, you can skip ahead to Chapter 3.
In Chapter 3 we will make sure you have a firm understanding of database basics before getting to the actual building of reports in Chapter 4. Chapter 3 will also introduce you to Galactic Delivery Services (GDS), the company we will be using as a case study throughout the remainder of the book. Even if your database skills are tip-top, you should spend a few minutes in Chapter 3 to get to know GDS.
