Implementing Tabular Data Models

Looking for faster and easier access to data insights? Take a deep dive into in-memory databases, known as tabular models, supported by SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) tools in SQL Server 2012 and SQL Server 2014. Learn to enrich the data model to meet analytical requirements, get the details on DAX queries for custom reporting, and hear tips and techniques for near real-time solutions.

Join experts Julie Koesmarno (fresh from her speaking engagement at SQL PASS Summit 2014) and Patrick LeBlanc for some exciting demos, including a step-by-step build of an actual tabular data model, plus some common pitfalls to avoid. If you have tons of data and want to build successful self-service analysis and corporate BI solutions, don’t miss this course!
