The scuttlebutt on BI is that Microsoft is going to implement the services in a cross-platform way. Color me skeptical, but they also said that reporting services was cross-browser for 2005, and it really wasn’t, so I’m going to wait and see how cross-platform SSRS works out. It will be cool if they can pull it off though. The master plan is:
- Get SSRS, PerformancePoint, and Excel services to work in browsers on iOS (includes IPad and IPhone I assume) by June next year.
- Add touch support the above offerings by December of next year.
- Add all the above to the new Windows 8 OS sometime in 2013.
