    You may want to start by researching BI solutions like Business Objects and Cognos.

    Somehow user-friendly, not cheap.

    In regards to let users "create their own stuff" I've seen users creating performance nightmares - from "select * with no where clause" to five billion rows join statements - believe me, you should never understimate the ability of an end user when it comes to bring the performance of your database down to its knees.
