Course Description

This hands-on course introduces the SQL Server 2017 Business Intelligence Suite, including Reporting Services (SSRS), Integration Services (SSIS) and Analysis Services (SSAS). Students will complete hands-on exercises creating a number of reports including table-based, cross tabular and forms based designs. Reports utilizing charts, gauges, KPIs, spark lines, data bars and tree maps will be built. Exercises will incorporate the use of report parameters and features such as drill down, interactive sorting, hyperlinks, book marks and report maps.

Consuming data from relational, multi-dimensional and tabular data sources will be incorporated into report designs. Students will become familiar with report deployment to the Reporting Service Web Portal and learn how to use portal the management tools to configure report caches, snapshots and subscriptions. Instruction and practice in designing report security to insure protection of enterprise data will be provided.

Students will gain experience with the Report Services Web portal, which enables publishing content other than paginated reports, such as Excel and Power BI. Students will also learn how to include KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) directly from a shared data set. 

One day is reserved for SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). Students will learn the basics of creating SSIS packages using SQL Server Data Tools to create Extract Transform and Load solutions used to populate data warehouses and marts. 

In the final day, based on a populated data warehouse they have created, students will then learn how to develop an SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) multidimensional (cube) model using Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) syntax. Cubes will be customized to include Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), Calculated Members, Named Sets, Navigational Hierarchies, and Perspectives. Also, a brief introduction to the SSAS Tabular module will be provided.

Students only interested in SSRS coverage should sign up for the 3-day SQL Server 2017 Reporting Services course.

Students interested in SSRS coverage and extended coverage of SSIS and SSAS should instead sign up for the SQL Server 2017 Reporting Services course followed by the SQL Server 2017 Business Intelligence: Integration Services and Analysis Services course, which provides 5-days of coverage for SSIS and SSAS capabilities. An 8-day training pass is available for $3,690.

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.
