Buried deep in a press release that mentions several announcements about various SQL Server releases and enhancements are details about an item many may find useful. Later this month Microsoft is releasing new reporting packs for SQL 2000 Reporting Services aimed at Great Plains and Internet Information Server (IIS).

The IIS one in particular catches my eye:

The Microsoft SQL Server Report Pack for IIS Logs is a set of 12 predefined report definition files that work with a sample database of information extracted from Microsoft IIS log files. The SQL Server Report Pack for IIS Logs allows users to monitor Web site statistics including visitors, page views and bandwidth for various time periods and geographic regions, to get more insight into their Web site usage. Users also can leverage the 12 sample reports as templates for designing new reports, and the database can be populated with individual data using the Log Parser included with the IIS 6.0 Resource Kit.

Cool. Not so sure about using the log parser (which, by the way, was recently updated), but I can think of a few things I would like to try to do with this one. Looking forward to the release. Links when they're available.
