Designing an Analysis Solution Architecture Using SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (3 Tage)

  • Capture the business and technical requirements for an analysis solution
  • Design and implement a logical Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) solution architecture
  • Design physical storage for a multidimensional solution
  • Create calculated members and named sets
  • Implement Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), actions, and stored procedures
  • Design the infrastructure for an OLAP solution
  • Deploy and secure an Analysis Services solution in a production environment
  • Monitor and optimize an Analysis Services solution
  • Implement a data mining solution

3 Tage


Experienced BI professionals. The target students for this course already have an understanding of how to use SQL Server 2005 tools to implement Analysis Services functionality, but need to develop their understanding of design principles and best practices when planning, implementing, and deploying an Analysis Services solution.

  • Have hands-on experience with database development tasks. For example:
    • Creating Transact-SQL queries
    • Writing and optimizing advanced queries (for example, queries that contain complex joins or subqueries)
    • Creating database objects such as tables, views, and indexes
  • Have foundational conceptual understanding of data warehousing, data marts, and business intelligence. Students must be well versed on the subjects of data warehousing, data marts, and BI, and preferably have read at least one book by Ralph Kimball or Bill Inmon.
  • Have a conceptual understanding of OLAP technologies, multidimensional data, MDX, and relational database modeling. For example, know what facts, dimensions, measures, calculated measures, and foreign keys are.
  • Be familiar with SQL Server 2005 features, tools, and technologies. In particular, they must have built and queried an Analysis Services cube.
  • Have foundational understanding of Microsoft Windows® security. For example, how groups, delegation of credentials, and impersonation function in a security context.
  • Have foundational understanding of Web-based architecture. For example, SSL, SOAP, and IIS—what they are and what their role is
  • Must understand the difference between replication and ETL
  • Already know how to use:
    • Microsoft Office Visio
    • Microsoft SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio
    • Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio
    • Performance Monitor
    • Microsoft SQL Server Profiler

Module 1: Capturing Business and Technical Requirements

In this module, students will first learn about key design principles that they should consider when defining the scope of a BI project. They will then learn how to identify the business and technical requirements to ensure that their solution meets the needs of its users.

  • Planning an Analysis Solution
  • Identifying Requirements and Constraints

Module 2: Designing and Implementing a Logical OLAP Solution Architecture

This module describes considerations and guidelines for designing an OLAP solution, including a relational data warehouse and an Analysis Services cube.

  • Planning an OLAP Solution
  • Designing and Implementing Fact and Dimension Tables
  • Designing and Implementing Cubes

Module 3: Designing Physical Storage for a Multidimensional Solution

In this module, students will learn how to design an effective physical storage solution for a multidimensional application.

  • Designing Physical Storage
  • Partitioning Relational Data
  • Partitioning Multidimensional Data

Module 4: Creating Calculations

In this module, students will learn how to create Multidimensional Expression (MDX) calculations. The module describes how to create calculated members, named sets, and scoped assignments.

  • Implementing Calculated Members
  • Implementing Named Sets
  • Implementing Scoped MDX Scripts

Module 5: Extending Cube Functionality

In this module, students will learn about the benefits of KPIs, actions, and stored procedures. They will also learn how to implement KPIs, actions, and stored procedures in an Analysis Services cube.

  • Key Performance Indicators
  • Actions
  • Stored Procedures

Module 6: Designing an Analysis Services Infrastructure

In this module, students will learn how to design an appropriate infrastructure for an OLAP application.

  • Considerations for Analysis Services Resource Requirements
  • Considerations for Analysis Services Scalability
  • Considerations for Analysis Services Availability

Module 7: Deploying a Multidimensional Solution into Production

In this module, students will learn about and compare the different deployment methods available in SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services. They will also learn about how security in Analysis Services functions and how to protect their company’s critical business information.

  • Deploying an Analysis Services Database
  • Managing Analysis Services Security

Module 8: Optimizing an OLAP Solution

In this module, students will learn how to monitor Analysis Services and how to optimize performance of their Analysis Services solutions.

  • Monitoring Analysis Services
  • Optimizing Performance

Module 9: Implementing Data Mining

In this module, students will learn what a data mining solution is and how to design and implement data mining functionality with SQL Server Analysis Services.

  • Introduction to Data Mining
  • Implementing a Data Mining Solution
  • Using Data Mining in a BI Solution
