SQL Server 2017 provides a rich environment for business intelligence development. The focus of this course is to familiarize developers with the use of the SQL Server Database Engine, SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), and SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) for business intelligence purposes. Students will design an OLAP database utilizing a star schema (Data Warehouse), and then populate it using ETL routines designed in SSIS. After the data warehouse has been populated, SSAS will be used to build both Multidimensional and Tabular models that will serve as reporting data sources.
Students will learn how to design and build data warehouses and marts using SQL Server Management Studio. In a series of exercises, students develop SSIS packages designed to maintain a data warehouse using the Data Flow control flow task. Also demonstrated are other control flow tasks that can interact with an NTFS file system, FTP server, execute Win32 processes, send emails, and run .NET scripts.
Based on the populated data warehouse they have created, students will then learn how to develop both Multidimensional and Tabular SSAS models using the languages Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) and Data Analysis Expressions (DAX). Cubes will be customized to include Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), Calculated Members, Named Sets, Navigational Hierarchies, and Perspectives.
Familiarity with database concepts, Windows desktop navigation and Transact-SQL. Attendance at our Microsoft Transact-SQL Programming course is highly recommended although not required.
