MS Reporting services cross platform

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:

  1. Get SSRS, PerformancePoint, and Excel services to work in browsers on iOS (includes IPad and IPhone I assume) by June next year.
  2. Add touch support the above offerings by December of next year.
  3. Add all the above to the new Windows 8 OS sometime in 2013.
