Hi there,

We have a lot of SSRS reports that we are looking for a software to manage them. I mean we want to be able to have a source control feature and a reporting tool that shows us some meta data of these reports (such as underlying queries, parameters etc.). Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

We have the following:
- SQL Server 2008
- Visual Studio 2010

I heard about the TFS2012 and TFS2012-Express and the TFService.
If your suggestion is going to be one of these, could you please share your experience?

Thank you,


James K

TFS is always a good choice, but it costs money. SVN is probably just as good for the purpose you have described. There are plugins availble for integrating SVN with Visual studio; AnkhSVN being the most popular.

I didn't quite follow what you said about "showing metadata". You would use Visual Studio for examining the reports. SVN or TFS does not come into picture for that purpose.
