Data Presentation and Analysis
Comprehensive Reports (dashboards)
Telerik Reporting is perfect for creating professional and comprehensive reports for an array of business needs. By using data bound items like Charts (link), Crosstabs (link) and SubReports you can achieve scenarios where data needs to be presented in a custom and complex logical layout. The data shown can be filtered, grouped, formatted conditionally to show trends, and styled to fit your needs. See demo.
Tabular Data Representation
Cross tabs and tables give you the ability to display data in a matrix format, used to present and analyze the relationship between two or more variables simultaneously. Cross tabulation is a vital part of any business intelligence (BI) solution, because it provides the end user with a tabular data format which is easy to understand, and more importantly - to analyze. The Telerik Reporting Cross Tabs offer the same intuitive interface within Visual Studio developers have become to expect from Telerik.
The Table item is a generalized layout report item that displays report data in cells that are organized into rows and columns. Report data can be any detail data as it is retrieved from the data source, or aggregated detail data organized into groups that are specified by the user.
The Table, Crosstab, and List report items are variations of the same data presentation, optimized for the specific data layout. By default, the Table and the Crosstab items display group data in a grid layout, while the List displays detail data in a free-form layout.
All tabular representation items offer design-time support in Visual Studio thus giving developers an extra level of detail in their report design.
Graphical Data Representation - Charts
By using RadChart, Telerik Reporting is capable of displaying data in a visually compelling way and helps the user/decision maker understand and analyze data in a more efficient manner. The chart can bind to live data and display 17 popular chart types, such as Bar, Pie, Gantt, Line, Area, Bubble, and more. See demo.
Thanks to the specialized Barcode Report Item you can create barcodes, and add them to your reports. The barcodes can be very practical for commercial purposes of small or medium sized businesses, where you can use them for the products you sell. See Barcode demo.
Similar to Microsoft Word, with Telerik Reporting you can create labels in the form of predefined page settings that represent standard paper formats. Designing labels is made easy by the built-in Report Wizard. Labels are very handy for mailing, pricing, or other commercial purposes. See Labels demo.
The powerful expression engine of Telerik Reporting supports page aggregates, which allow you to add customizable sub-totals and summary data at the bottom of every page in you reports, such as total number of Unit X that has been sold, or the average number of processes that have passed. You can add counts, sums, and averages to each page, even if your report consists of several subreports and tables.
