Upcoming MDX and Analysis Services Workshops

Tallan and New Horizons are pleased to present a Complimentary Half-Day, Hands-On Workshop: Real-World SQL Server Analysis Services and MDX

Overview of the Workshop
MDX is the universal query language for OLAP databases, just like SQL is the lingua franca of relational databases. While SQL is widely understood and adopted, MDX has more of a steep learning curve and a lack of easy-to-follow resources.

BI solution developers, report designers and administrators of SQL Server Analysis Services applications have many opportunities to use MDX expressions to enhance the analytic ability of an application.

What better way to master MDX than through hands-on, real world examples?

In this half-day deep dive into MDX and SQL Server Analysis Services, Tallan Senior Consultants will deconstruct a real-world reporting scenario and in the process:

  • Explain how to implement advanced time intelligence
  • Examine OLAP data structures: attributes, levels, hierarchies, dimensions, measures
  • Leverage calculated members to persist calculations within Analysis Services

Audience
This hands-on course is targeted to database developers and architects, Business Intelligence solution developers, report designers and business analysts such as financial planners, marketing analysts, and cost accountants.

The work shop will be held in fully equipped classrooms giving the attendees the opportunity to work through the examples with the instructor.
