MS404: Implementing SSAS Multi-Dimensional Cube

MS404: Implementing SSAS Multi-Dimensional Cube

 

Class Overview

 

This SSAS training class teaches students how to implement an Analysis Services solution in an organization. The class discusses how to use the Analysis Services development tools to create an Analysis Services database and an OLAP cube, and how to use the Analysis Services management and administrative tools to manage an Analysis Services solution.

This SSAS class targets people who design and maintain business intelligence solutions for their organization. These individuals work in environments where databases play a key role in their primary job and may perform database administration and maintenance as part of their primary job responsibilities.

The secondary audience for this course is individuals who develop applications that deliver content from SQL Server Analysis Services to the organization.

 

Class Goals

Learn to describe how SQL Server Analysis Services can be used to implement analytical solutions.

Learn to create multidimensional analysis solutions with SQL Server Analysis Services.

Learn to implement dimensions and cubes in an Analysis Services solution.
