Paginated reports are a new feature for Power BI Report Server that enable the creation of reports in a fixed format and offer precise customization. You can now store and manage paginated reports in the Power BI Report Server web portal, just as you can in the SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) web portal. This AMA will be focused on this exciting new offering and give folks a chance to ask questions and meet the team virtually. If you are not familiar with Power BI Report Server, Power BI Report Server is the on-premises solution for reporting today, with the flexibility to move to the cloud tomorrow. It's included with Power BI Premium so you have the ability to move to the cloud on your terms. In this week’s webinar the Report Server team will answer your Paginated reports for Power BI Report Server questions AND show you the answers live. Don't have any questions? Not to worry we will have the team pull out their favorite demos and show why you should start using paginated reports now.

About our host Chris Finlan: Since its introduction in 2013, Christopher Finlan has been one of the top evangelists for Power BI in his role at Microsoft. As the lead Business Intelligence Technology Solution resource in the Mid-Atlantic Region, he was responsible for helping over 140 enterprise customers align their specific requirements to the Microsoft Cloud and Data Platform. His unique presentation style and background in “shadow IT” has made him a highly sought-after speaker for customer presentations from the server room to the board room on a wide variety of BI-related topics. Prior to joining Microsoft, Chris led the transition for his team to a fast and flexible reporting and LOB solution that integrated Microsoft Technology with SAP Data. By creating and implementing customized mobile and desktop applications that supported hundreds of internal users across diverse lines of business, he saw first-hand how Microsoft’s tools could transform a business in record time and generate millions of dollars of savings from lost productivity and wasted investments in technology that had ten times the cost while providing a fraction of the value. He spoke about some of that experience during his appearance on the popular .Net Rocks! internet talk show. Currently a Senior Program Manager on the Power BI team, Chris has been working in the software industry in various roles, from the product team to pre-sales, technical training, database administration and sales operations. He holds a B.A. from Temple University in Philadelphia.
