This course is designed to take you to the next level in your understanding of SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS). We use a variety of exclusive lectures on SQL Server internals, as well as hands-on lab exercises to back up the material taught.
Microsoft Solution Architect
Dustin is a Microsoft Solution Architect and was previously a Business Intelligence Consultant with Pragmatic Works. Dustin has provided business intelligence solutions for clients whose issues revolve around SSRS, SSIS and SSAS. When Dustin isn’t consulting, you can find him speaking at SQL Saturday and Code Camp events or blogging at http://www.bidn.com/blogs/dustinryan and http://SQLDusty.wordpress.com.
WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE THE CLASS
This class assumes that you have a strong understanding of SSAS fundamentals. For example, you should already know and use a majority of the functions in basic cube development before attending this class. While it is not mandatory, it is ideal to have an instance of Analysis Services to follow some sections of the class.
