Bold Reports empowers you to seamlessly connect with your data, irrespective of the database system you use, through its robust Report Server. Acting as the backbone of your reporting infrastructure, the Report Server facilitates secure data access and management across various database platforms. Complementing this, our Report Designer provides you with a user-friendly interface to design and customize your reports. Whether your data resides in SQL databases, NoSQL databases, or cloud-based storage solutions, Bold Reports ensures that you can maximize your data’s potential, transforming the way you analyze and visualize information. Say goodbye to database limitations and embrace the freedom to control your data like never before with Bold Reports.

Why You Need Database Freedom in a Reporting Solution

Data is essential, but it often resides in scattered locations, making access challenging. A reporting solution with database freedom enables you to connect seamlessly to diverse data sources, regardless of their storage location. The Report Server acts as a data traffic controller, ensuring you receive updated information, while the Report Designer serves as your creative tool to customize report layouts and make data visually appealing. This combination empowers you to harness all your data and present it meaningfully to drive informed decisions.

Embracing Database Diversity

Traditional reporting tools often limit you to using just one database. But with Bold Reports, you have the freedom to choose from a range of popular databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL. This flexibility allows you to connect to and fetch data from your organization’s preferred database system.

Imagine you want to use data that requires the scalability of MySQL or the advanced capabilities of PostgreSQL. Bold Reports gives you the ability to tap into the strengths of these databases, so you can pick the one that fits your requirements. It’s like having a toolbox and you can select the right tool for the job at hand.

Simplified Setup and Configuration

When you’re setting up a reporting solution, you typically need a report server and a report designer. In the case of SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services), this often involves establishing a dedicated SQL Server database and configuring intricate connections for the report server. Then, you use a report designer to create and format your reports. This can be a long process, especially if you’re not already using SQL Server. However, Bold Reports simplifies the entire setup and reporting process for popular data sources like MySQL or PostgreSQL.
