We used to run two courses on SQL Server Analysis Services, but have now discontinued our multi-dimensional offering (as we expect Microsoft to do some time soon too). Here's a quick summary of what you'll learn on our two-day SSAS Tabular course.
If you want to know what the differences are between the older multi-dimensional version of SSAS and newer tabular model version, see our blog on the differences between the two versions.
The first thing you'll learn on this course is how to import data, and create a data model:
You'll learn how to import tables, and how to hide tables and columns in your data model.
You'll then learn how to use this to create pivot tables:
The pivot table field list won't show columns/tables which are hidden.
You'll then learn how to use DAX to create calculated columns:
A very simple formula - they will get harder!
You'll then learn how to create measures like this:
A measure (in this case showing total sales for the London region).
You'll learn how to use measures to create and show KPIs:
Part of the dialog box for creating KPIs.
All this, and much more! For a full list of what you'll learn, see our course outline.
