How do I view an SSRS Backlog Velocity Report?

Velocity is how much product backlog effort a team can handle in one sprint. This can be estimated by viewing previous sprints, assuming the team composition and sprint duration are kept constant. It can also be established on a sprint-by-sprint basis, using commitment-based planning. This article covers viewing an SSRS  Backlog Velocity Report in EPM Live.
