BIxPress 3.5–Now With More Awesome!
Pragmatic Works has now released version 3.5 of the award-winning BIxPress software! For those not familiar with BIxPress it’s a tool that helps you develop SSIS/SSAS solutions faster, easily/quickly deploy SSIS packages, monitor performance SSIS packages and much, much more!
So what’s new with 3.5? In addition to now having SQL Server 2012 support (SSIS), you may have noticed in previous released that Reporting Services didn’t get much love. That all changes with this release as we now have incorporated health monitoring of Reporting Services instances called Reporting Performance Monitor!The new dashboard includes Average Runtime for Reports, Longest Running Reports, Report Memory Usage, Average number of Rows, Active Users, et cetera:
Another great feature in this release is the Report Deployment Tool. This feature lets you quickly and easily deploy your Reports, Folder Structures, and Data Sources between Reporting Services instances!
One more major update in this release is the update to the SSIS Package Performance monitoring interface. Same great insight, new cleaner interface!
