EXCEPTIONAL TRAINING COURSES FOR IT PROFESSIONALS
LONDON UK | ONSITE | ONLINE
Our Business Intelligence (BI) training course puts this key technology into perspective and de-mystifies its complexity. The course covers the discovery and preparation of data, the modelling of the data, and the presentation of the data in insightful and attractive reports and dashboards.
We spend two days looking at Reporting Services (SSRS) and other visualisation tools such as Power BI – when you return to the office, you will easily be able to create wonderful and informative reports and dashboards. Then there are two days modelling data in Analysis Services (SSAS) with a little help from Integration Services (SSIS). Both SSAS multidimensional and tabular models (including Power Pivot) are covered – these are the power houses that drive your reports and dashboards. Finally, for one day, we concentrate upon SSIS, so you can learn how to assemble, modify, and clean your data.
After just five days of intensive practicals you will be well on your way to being a BI expert and will be ready to astound your colleagues at your place of work. All the work you do is saved and you can take it with you for future reference.
The course is presented by a leading BI instructor who has real-world experience with many multinationals and currently has four BI books (on MDX, DAX, DMX, and SQL) in print.
