VersaReports new RDL connector for rendering and distributing reporting files with their Universal Report Server provides similar capabilities as Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services as well as other features that are unique to the reporting server market. This connector, in addition to supporting all the features of Client Report Definition files, also supports data-centric features of RDL files such as remote data sources and data queries.
"VersaReports Universal Report Server allows companies to host reports created with nearly ANY Microsoft .NET reporting packages, including SAP Crystal Reports, GrapeCity ActiveReports, DevExpress XtraReports, and Telerik Reporting," said Andy Feibus, president of VersaReports. "For users working with RDL-based reports, our new RDL Connector allows them to schedule, distribute, and archive another type of report with URS. Since RDL reports are not as flexible as those that can be created with other report designers, this will help users migrate away from Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services without having to completely re-engineer their existing reports."
