Roadmap to ReportServer 2.2

It's been a bit quiet here over the last couple of weeks as we have been busy preparing for CeBit. Now that CeBit is over the next release of ReportServer is around the corner (we are planning to release ReportServer 2.2 in June) and I thought I tell you a bit about it.

CeBIT 2014 - See you there!

This year, for the first time, datenwerke will be at CeBIT 2014 in Hannover (Germany). As a co-exhibitor with Hessen Trade & Invest we will set up our stand in Hall 2 (Digital Business Solutions). 

Besides presenting our web-based open source business intelligence software ReportServer, we will also introduce TDE:R3, which helps you standardize your data exports from SAP R/3 and therefore lower your IT-costs by eliminating the need for custom ABAP programs to extract business data. 

We are looking forward to meet up with you! If you still need tickets, or like to schedule an appointment contact us at

Configure LDAP to use ReportServer with ActiveDirectory authentication

In this post we will show the necessary steps to connect ReportServer to an Active Directory using LDAP. As there are many valid ways to organize a company's directory (may it be AD or another vendors product) ReportServer does not come with a predefined LDAP connector. This on one hand means, that the configuration might seem rather complex, but on the other hand it provides you with a maximum of flexibility.
