Data Source Wizard for Visual Studio - DevExpress Reports

Curated Data Visualization

Comprehensive suite of UI elements.

The goal is simple: provide business users with the information required to monitor business outcomes and make intelligent, real-time decisions. While the goal may be simple, the reality is that most reports are rigid and don't allow users to efficiently explore information on their own terms. The evolving needs of the enterprise dictate that a reporting solution offer simple and straightforward end-user customization options so that report consumers can freely manipulate output to maximize information accuracy/data clarity.

Flexibility is key and ease-of-use paramount.

End-User Report Designer

Runtime report design made easy.

Need to introduce self-service reporting capabilities in your desktop app? With DevExpress Reports, you can empower users by integrating our robust End-User Report Designer into any WinForms or WPF application. Once integrated into your desktop project, the DevExpress End-User Report Designer will place control in the hands of users and reduce the number of pre-built reports you would otherwise have to create within Visual Studio.

The DevExpress End-User Report Designer includes a comprehensive customization API and allows you to fine-tune its user interface to address organizational requirements (for instance, you can integrate custom report controls and functions, introduce new panels, construct report templates and define accessible data sources).
