Where is Reporting in 15.1 Platform Installer? Do i really have to keep 14.2 Reporting alongside 15.1 WPF? If so, when is 15.1 Reporting due out?
Just finished a chat session with an Infragistics rep; bottom line: reporting as we know it is not, and will not, be in 15.1. However, the rep eluded to some announcement about this in a week, but couldn't give me details. So either its dead and they delayed telling anyone because A: "look at the shiny new 15.1 update so forget we gutted reporting" .. or B: they have a brand new secret reporting platform.
If its A then my company is screwed and we will be moving to Telerik and Kendo.
If it's B, then they should have announced it earlier, rather then after a big update that doesn't happen to have the reporting tool, thus making us panic a bit.
yeah i got a reply from Support that said it is not a product anymore. they said they will still be doing service releases for it, but since it didn't have one this round or last, i highly doubt that. last was October 2014.
This is really great, just after I renewed another year! If i knew that beforehand I would have switched to another product/company.
Today we released a blog post addressing this change. You can find out more about it here.
While I agree that 'traditional tabular, developer-built reports', as mentioned in your blog post, are out-dated and users need to be pushed into the future of dashboards, there is still a huge demand for them by stuffy, crotchety users determined to be set in their ways for the next several decades. We have tried for a couple of years as a company to try and ween our users off them, but at least half of them simply refuse to budge.
We need a product that can handle both past and present and as such this is disappointing news.
