I am going to migrate/update our SP 2010 to 2013 or 2016 (depending on when it actually gets released). Preferably cloud.
What our fear is currently is... if we go cloud will we really have access to our data? Can we report our SP data using SSRS out of it? I hear with SP lists you can get data via OData, but you can't use OData in SSRS!
So... I found BCS - and that seems to let you use external data within sharepoint. but does it allow a way to get SP data down to a local server?
