Report Developer Definition

Reports are often the most visible output of software a application. Reports can contain sales and inventory counts; usage statistics and metrics; and revenue vs. expense summaries. Reports are used by businesses to make decisions that sometimes have a very significant impact on the bottom line. As such, it is important that the information on a report is accurate. That's where a report developer comes in. Aside from designing the layout of a report, the report developer has to have a good understanding of the underlying data sources (databases) as well as some expertise in interpreting the requirements being provided by management. Only with both of these skills can a report developer hope to provide the right data at the right time to the right people.
