Reporting Software to replace Access/Excel

    Hi All,

    We are looking to move away finally from our Access/Excel reporting but there seems to be a flood of reporting/BI/MI tools available.

    Can anyone advise on potential contenders we could investigate?

    We currently have our data from the case management software we use populating a separate SQL Server database. Ideally we want something that can not only easily connect to this data but also provide a dashboard capability for users to see summaries as well as then accessing the data in a report if required. The report can be in Excel or another format but I would look to integrate it in a web based platform also at a later date.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?

    Many thanks,
