As Reporting Services matures over the next year or two, little doubt exists that it will remain an exciting product. With this new version of Reporting Services in SQL Server 2005, and third parties releasing alternative report-authoring environments and Reporting Services extensions, it is safe to say Reporting Services will continue to be in the news for some time to come. Based on the interest seen in the past year and a half, it also looks like Reporting Services is going to have a rapidly growing user community.
It may be difficult to say exactly where Reporting Services is going from here, but all the signs point in a positive direction. It might be easier to answer the question, Where does my business information go from here? With a tool as capable, flexible, and extensible as Reporting Services, the answer is, Anywhere you need it to go!
