Hi, Long time Telerik customer / developer here :)
I have a large customer who has been exploring reporting portals to be used for a Hosted service they want to provide to their customer base.
I have been doing the development of the solution and left them to pick a reporting solution, but they have failed to do so and now run out of time.
Long story short, I have only a few days to come back to them and say if the Telerik Reporting Server is suitable and then they will buy licensing for it. I have not used the Report Server before ( I have it installed as part of my DEV package, but never played with it!) and I am flat out with work.. so I hope someone who knows the system well can answer some questions please.
1) Is this suitable for a Public facing reporting server ( Public URL) , to be shared with multiple customers, each with their own logons. (Tenanted). What features are not available in this scenario. It is possible they could set up access via VPN rather than having it totally public.
2) Each Tenant will have the same tables for reporting so the same reports should be used for each customer, BUT each tenant has it's own database. Can we set up each tenant to use the same reports but using their own data connection? ( Please note that each tenant may have multiple logons and each logon maybe limited to the data available to select from ( the reporting objects, not the reports)
3) General use question.. basically we want the customer to have access to a bunch of canned reports and be able to select these to run, along with parameters such as data objects to report on, time frames, grouping etc. I think they want Scheduled reports as well.
4) The customers are all in Sweden , so I think they will want the interface in Swedish ( but probably not a showstopper)
I'm sure I have lots more questions.. but I think these are the key ones... any help greatly appreciated.
