The term Business Intelligence represents the capacity of a corporation to look at all business data as a whole in order to distinguish information which plays a key role in the strategic planning process and in decision making of the corporation.

ReportServer serves as an interface to access these data, and the user can easily and efficiently make use of them. ReportServer offers tools to support you in your daily work establishing ready-to-print reports, or performing ad-hoc analyses.
In this manual we discuss ReportServer from the point of administrators that wish to extend ReportServers using scripts. This guide will also help report designers that use ReportServer script reports to create interactive reports or reports based on metadata kept by ReportServer.
