Course Description

SQL Server 2017 provides a rich environment for business intelligence development. The focus of this course is to familiarize developers with the use of SQL Server Engine, SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) and SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) to create and populate data warehouses through ETL processing and build Multidimensional and Tabular models to use and 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.

Course Prerequisites

Familiarity with database concepts, Windows desktop navigation and software installation techniques. Attendance at the SQL Programming course or Microsoft Transact-SQL Programming course is highly recommended although not required.
