On Feb 27 we presented a webinar on our Telerik Reporting suite. The webinar was titled “Take Your Reports to Any Screen with Telerik Reporting”. In this blog post we will recap the webinar for those of you who couldn’t not make it live.
Telerik Reporting is a lightweight reporting solution for all .NET cloud, web, and desktop platforms (ASP.NET, Ajax, Silverlight, WPF, Windows Forms, and Azure) which targets developers and end-users. Rich interactive and reusable reports can be created by developers in Visual Studio, and by end users in the desktop-based Report Designer. With the help of Telerik Reporting users can examine and probe data, export reports to Microsoft Office Word and Excel for further analysis, and even present them as PowerPoint documents.
