Online Training SQL Server SSAS (Multidimensional MDX) – an Introduction
Reviews:”Good Stuff Overall!!! In my opinion, the instructor did great with the “How-tos” which helped for sure in grasping the whole concept of how to create cubes, set up data source and source views, dimensions, add attributes etc.” — Lakeside David-Debo”A fantastic course which gets you rolling very quickly and comfortably, thanks for the short and condensed knowledge delivery. Thanks, Phillip you made SSAS very simple for me.” – Anup Kale”This is really the perfect course for beginners! Easy to learn and very inspirational for further investigations in SSAS. Thank you very much, Phillip!” – Marina BarinovaWelcome to this course on SQL Server SSAS and MDX Cubes an Introduction.You may have become experienced with creating SQL statements in SQL Server Management Studio. Building databases is ideal when you want to quickly add data thats why they are called OLTP Online Transaction Processing they are designed for speed for adding transactions. But what if you want to get to get information about? OLTP databases are not based designed for this. What you need instead is a process whereby data is pre-aggregated in other words, a lot of the calculations you may write have been calculated before you ask for them. It saves a lot of time. It would also be useful if the end user didnt have to bother with SQL queries, and could use something a bit more hands-on, although retaining something more advanced for advanced users. Thats where cubes come in, full of pre-aggregated data, and SQL Server Analytical Services or SSAS (Online Analytical Processing) allows you to make these cubes. This course is designed for the complete beginner in Multidimensionalcubes, or someone who wants to refresh their memory. Well create a cube to start with from an ordinary database, and then Ill ask you to create one from a special database known as a Data Warehouse. Well export our cube in SQL Server Management Studio, and into SSRS and well even have a bit of a look at the more advanced way of querying that is MDX.It will assist withthe “Design a multidimensional business intelligence (BI)semantic model” sectionof Microsoftexam 70-768″Developing SQLData Models”.

Investing in yourself through Learning
As a society, we spend hundreds of billions of dollars measuring the return on our financial assets. Yet, at the same time, we still haven’t found convincing ways of measuring the return on our investments in developing people.
And I get it: If my bank account pays me 1% a year, I can measure it to the penny. We’ve been collectively trained to expect neat and precise ROI calculations on everything, so when it’s applied to something as seemingly squishy as how effectively people are learning in the workplace, the natural inclination is to throw up our hands and say it can’t be done. But we need to figure this out. In a world where skills beat capital, the winners and losers of the next 30 years will be determined by their ability to attract and develop great talent.
Fortunately, corporate learning & development (L&D), like most business functions, is evolving quickly. We can embrace some level of ambiguity and have rigor when measuring the ROI of learning. It just might look a little different than an M.B.A. would expect to see in an Excel model.
