AX 2012 - Reporting on the brain!
Well, reporting is a hot topic for sure with the release of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. This is something I've been covering some already, and Microsoft has a great post out today, on how to correctly Scale Out SSRS and AX 2012.
The link to the TechNet article on this topic can be found here.: How to: Configure a Report Server Scale-Out Deployment (Reporting Services Configuration)
What's another great article to point out, and this applies to scale of services in AX 2012, is the following: Configuring network load balancing for services [AX 2012]. This link then, helps not only enable scale of reporting, but also gives us firm 'Yes' services, and therefore integration points, can scale out via NLB as well.
Finally, the article that brought this together today, is from the following: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Reporting Services – Scale-out deployments
I recommend really review the above, and understanding the fact that, when it comes to certain roles in Dynamics AX, relating to performance and Scale, sometimes the role is meant to scale out, vs. scale up.
Also, here is a list of reporting blog post I have done recently:
- AX 2012 Reporting Architecture Model Review
- AX 2012 Reports Executing on your iPad
- Upgrading Reports for AX 2012 - Resources
- AX 2012 - Install multiple instances of SSRS
- AX 2012 - Report Programming Guide / MVC
As you can see, as the title of the post implies, reporting is for sure on the brain, for AX 2012. The idea, is to better understand the concepts, the model, the delivery options, as well now as the ability to scale out for reporting needs.
I actually, as stated earlier today, have a lot of great post that will be covering the BI story more generally, as well as specifics for AX 2012 that will build from these kinds of post. That's all for now though, check back soon!
Till next time!
