Submission + - Best software for ad-hoc sql reporting?

Vrtigo1 writes: I work for a small business (100 employees) that has a lot of data, but no easy way for the business users to get it in a self service fashion. We've used MS Access and SSRS to build reports that are frequently requested so the users can run them anytime they want, but we still get tons of unique requests and handling these eats up a large amount of our time. We'd like to find a reporting engine that allows users to build these queries themselves using an intuitive GUI interface. We're a Microsoft shop, but aren't opposed to a non-Microsoft solution as long as it can talk to MSSQL. We've found a lot of enterprise systems, but can't justify spending $30k+ on reporting software. If someone told you they had a budget of $10k to purchase a reporting package what would you recommend?
