SQL Server Analysis & Int Services training course (code: SSASIS)


This SQL Server Analysis Services SSAS training course covers the creation of data warehouses and cubes, discovery and preparation of data, ready forretrieval and presentation of the data in insightful and attractive reports and dashboards. We spend time 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, we concentrate upon SSIS, so you can learn how to assemble, modify, and clean your data.


Anyone interested in getting raw data to the end user as information that has integrity, is retrieved quickly and requires little or no programming. Some basic SQL skills would be an advantage.
