2796 Designing an Analysis Solution Architecture

Valor:

Pré-requisitos
Prerequisites Before attending this course, students must: • Have hands-on experience with database development tasks. For example: • Creating Transact-SQL queries • Writing and optimizing advanced queries (for example, queries that contain complex joins or subqueries) • Creating database objects such as tables, views, and indexes • Have foundational conceptual understanding of data warehousing, data marts, and business intelligence. Students must be well versed on the subjects of data warehousing, data marts, and BI, and preferably have read at least one book by Ralph Kimball or Bill Inmon. • Have a conceptual understanding of OLAP technologies, multidimensional data, MDX, and relational database modeling. For example, know what facts, dimensions, measures, calculated measures, and foreign keys are. • Be familiar with SQL Server 2005 features, tools, and technologies. In particular, they must have built and queried an Analysis Services cube. • Have foundational understanding of Microsoft Windows security. For example, how groups, delegation of credentials, and impersonation function in a security context. • Have foundational understanding of Web-based architecture. For example, SSL, SOAP, and IIS-what they are and what their role is. • Must understand the difference between replication and ETL. • Already know how to use: • Microsoft Office Visio • Microsoft SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio • Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio • Performance Monitor • Microsoft SQL Server Profiler

The purpose of this three day course is to teach business intelligence (BI) professionals working in enterprise environments how to design a multidimensional solution architecture that supports their BI solution. Students will go through the entire process-from capturing business and technical requirements, to deploying a multidimensional solution, to production. Students will also be taught to develop custom functionality and optimize a multidimensional solution.

The course focuses on the planning and design aspects of an analysis solution and does not teach students how to create Analysis Services database objects or how to use the development tools provided with SQL Server 2005.
