If you're wondering whether you should be learning SQL Server Reporting Services, the answer is yes! SSRS (as it's often called) allows you to create impressive reports, including drill-through, indicators, gauges and lots of other whizzy features.  You can then publish these reports directly to your company's website in a number of different formats, or push them out to subscribers by email.
