"Analysis Services / Tabular" is the new in-memory-based analytical product from the SQL Server Product suite. It fits in with the sibling products "Analysis Services / Multidimensional" (also contained in "Analysis Services") (OLAP) and "Analysis Services / Data Mining" added as a third. "SSAS Tabular" is the server counterpart to the desktop version "Excel PowerPivot ", whose models can also be imported into SSAS Tabular. With SSAS Tabular, the top-down development of analysis and reporting solutions is to be promoted. At the beginning of the development there is the PowerUser with his technical requirements and not the reporting -Department. SSAS Tabular is more similar to the line-based calculation logic of Excel and is therefore more intuitive for beginners.
The seminar provides an overview of the architecture of the product, the integration into a reporting landscape and the most important tools for development and query. Simple tabular models are created and displayed in Excel. In addition, an overview of the similarities and differences between SSAS Multidimensional and MDX on the one hand and SSAS Tabular and DAX on the other is given.

Training goal

The participants get to know the most important features of SSAS Tabular and the integration options in a reporting landscape. In addition, a practical introduction is provided that enables productive use.

FAQ for in-house training

What does open training and in-house training mean?

In the case of an open training course, the location and date are set in advance. Anyone interested can book an open training course, so participants from different companies meet.

In-house training courses can be tailored to your individual training needs. You determine the group of participants, the date and the training location.

Is in-house training the right choice?

With in-house training, we cater to the individual needs of your company and cover the training needs directly at your company.

This saves time and money and ensures that your employees' knowledge is transferred quickly.

Who takes care of the technology for in-house training?

A complete learning environment in the cloud with remote access is a matter of course for us. You need to worry about anything. Only a functioning PC or notebook with Internet connection should be available for each participant on the day of the training.
