Course description

SQL Server 2016 Business Intelligence Application Development (SSRS, SSIS, SSAS)

SQL Server Reporting Services 2016 contains significant new functionality and improvements over its predecessors including the new Reporting Services Web portal, support for mobile reports and dashboards, a new HTML5 rendering engine and exciting new report design enhancements.

All reports are developed utilizing SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT), however the new 2016 Report Designer is also introduced. Students will complete hands-on exercises creating a number of reports including table-based, cross tabular and forms based designs. Reports utilizing the newly designed charts, gauges, KPIs, spark lines, data bars and tree maps will be built. Exercises will incorporate the use of report parameters and features such as drill down, interactive sorting, hyperlinks, book marks and report maps.

Consuming data from relational, multi-dimensional and the new tabular data sources will be incorporated into report designs. Students will become familiar with report deployment to the new Reporting Service Web Portal (replaced Report Manager) and learn how to use portal the management tools to configure report caches, snapshots and subscriptions. Instruction and practice in designing report security to insure protection of enterprise data will be provided.

The student will gain experience with the new Report Services Web portal, which enables publishing content other than paginated reports, such as Excel and Power BI. Students will also learn how to include KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) directly from a shared data set.

One day is reserved for SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). Students will learn the basics of creating SSIS packages using SQL Server Data Tools to create Extract Transform and Load solutions used to populate data warehouses and marts.
In the final day, based on a populated data warehouse they have created, students will then learn how to develop an SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) multidimensional (cube) model using Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) syntax. Cubes will be customized to include Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), Calculated Members, Named Sets, Navigational Hierarchies, and Perspectives. Also, a brief introduction to the SSAS Tabular module will be provided.

Students only interested in SSRS coverage should sign up for the 3-day SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services course.

Students interested in SSRS coverage and extended coverage of SSIS and SSAS should instead sign up for the SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services course followed by the SQL Server 2016 Business Intelligence: Integration Services and Analysis Services course, which provides 5-days of coverage for SSIS and SSAS capabilities. An 8-day training pass is available for $3,690.

Wonderful course. I was skeptical about doing a remote course as I have often found them unengaging and plagued with technical difficulties. I used my own laptop (for TeamViewer) and iPad (for Visimeet). I appreciated the pre-training to get my system set up and to get me familiar with the technology. It made the course way less stressful. Excel...
