Being the unique reporting tool for Silverlight on the software market, Report Sharp-Shooter role in the bundle is to provide a developer with everything necessary to build corporate reporting systems and integrate them directly into Silverlight applications. The reporting tool does not put any limits on report types, provides visual designer to easily create them, allows enriching the reports with charts, gauges, pivot tables, and more.
