Reports - Shorter Project Life Cycles

I worked in programming for 15 years (Visual Basic, ASP, ASP.net, Java/JSP).

During that time I worked on projects that spanned long periods of time, sometimes 5 or 6 months.

However, during that same time frame I also worked on reports.

Reports tend to have short project life cycles.

Initial request to delivery is a few hours or maybe a few days.

No longer do I have project releases where I'm moving 25-50 files into production.

Doing SSRS reports is basically Rapid Application Development.

The end product takes less time, we just have more report requests overall.

It never ends!
