Peng! (Crystal to SSRS Migration Guide)


One of the top questions we get from customers is how to migrate from Crystal Reports. For those of you who are looking to make the switch, we just posted a migration guide on the web site.


We are also having an associated webcast scheduled for June 20th that should give you some good information.


See you at Tech Ed!

  1. This is an excellent paper!  A similar effort might be undertaken for Cognos reports, cubes, etc.  Having implemented Cognos for over ten years, I would be very interested in contributing to such an effort.  Much of my current practice revolves around converting Cognos and other previously dominant BI solutions to the Microsoft integrated solution (MSSQL Server, Analysis Services, Integration Services and Reporting Services).
