Brian Welcker on Analysis Services/Reporting Services integration
I’ve been quite vocal in my disapproval of the way that Analysis Services and Reporting Services integration has been handled over the last few months, so it’s only fair to publicise a posting on Brian Welcker’s blog which is I guess aimed at answering people like me:
I don’t accept some of the points he makes, though, and hopefully by the time you read this the comment I submitted will have gone through moderation and be visible.
However I do think the fact that the problem has been addressed in this way highlights the openness of Microsoft’s development teams and the positive effect that their willingness to blog, post on newsgroups etc has on customer satisfaction. Even though I’m still not satisfied with the functionality in question after reading Brian’s post, the feeling that I’m able to express my grievances and have them heard is makes me happier than if I thought no-one at all was listening.
