Should you use tabular or multi-dimensional SSAS mode? Here's the answer!
Part one of a seven-part series of blogs
If you're building a data warehouse, you'll want to know whether you should be creating cubes using the legacy multi-dimensional Analysis Services server mode, or creating data models in the new tabular mode. This blog gives Wise Owl's take on the subject.
Up until the release of SQL Server 2012, SQL Server Analysis Services was straightforward: there was only one installation mode. But then along came tabular ...
The choice you have to make when installing Analysis Services in SQL Server 2012 or later. You don't get a second bite at this cherry!
This blog accordingly tries to answer the question: which server mode should you choose?
For those who want a quick answer, my recommendation is that you should use tabular if you possibly can (although if you have legacy cubes to support you may not have the luxury of choice). However, you should read through this blog carefully to see if you agree with its arguments!
