Creating a BI solution from A to Z
This workshop is aimed to all people who find themselves thrown into the big, big world of Business Intelligence. Here you'll learn how to create a business intelligence solution from zero, learning the basic principles and different design techniques: star and snowflake schemas, fact and dimension tables. Inmon and Kimball will be names which you will be familiar with after this intensive BI deep dive. Of course, after having defined the data warehouse, we'll move on to show how to use Integration Services and Analysis Services to load the data that will empower your end users so they will enjoy your work at its maximum and you'll love the work you have done! Everything explained will come from real-world experience, giving you not only the technical knowledge but, equally important, the architectural vision and the best practices you’ll need to enforce to make a BI solution a success.
