Microsoft SQL Server MSBI Online Training
Microsoft SQL Server and Business Intelligence Online Course written by: denis_chirchir Microsoft SQL Server MSBI Online Training is an online oriented program to equip the learner with business intelligence skills with the use of Microsoft Business Intelligence (MSBI) tools.
Business intelligence is a technical process of acquiring data, analyzing the data and transforming it into useful information that aid corporate executives, business managers and developers in making profitable business decisions. An SQL Server is a relational database management system for storing and retrieving data and information as requested by applications.
The Microsoft SQL Server MSBI Online Training program comprises of three major parts : SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), SQL Server Analytical Services (SSAS) and SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS).SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) is an ETL (extract, transform and load) tool that integrates data in different formats such as text files, excel, Oracle, MySQL, and other formats into one format and saves the data into a data warehouse.
Some of the concepts covered include: SSIS architecture which includes packages, control flow, and data flow; SSIS tools which comprise of SSIS package designer, control flow, connection managers, variables, data flow,parameters and event handlers. SSIS tasks is also a major concept and covers SSIS task objects,looping and sequence tasks,script task, analysis services tasks and data flow tasks. SSIS Containers are also studied and include task host containers,sequence containers and groups.
Other SSIS concepts covered are data flow which focuses on understanding data flow, data viewers , sources, destinations and common transformations. How to use variables, parameters and expressions when dealing with dynamic package objects, understanding data types, and working with expressions is part of the course. SSIS methods of joining data,scripting, essential coding, debugging and troubleshooting techniques, loading a data warehouse, advanced data cleansing and using a relational engine are covered as well.
SQL Server Analytical Services (SSAS) is another major part of the Microsoft SQL Server MSBI Online Training program. The main concepts include introduction to OLAP(Online Analytical Processing) where aspects such as data warehousing, applications of OLAP, history of OLAP and data mining are covered. Cubes, Dimensions and Measures is also a major part of SSAS and explains cubes and their components, defining measures and dimensions, multidimensional expressions, data warehouses and storage.
The SSAS development environment requirements and architecture, the developer and admin Services are explored using Business Intelligence development Studio and SQL Server management studio. Other concepts covered in SSAS are creating a data source view, creating dimensions, building a cube, deploying and processing, MDX(Multidimensional expressions) features, cube features, data mining, PowerPivot, administration and user interfaces.SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) is a reporting service that represents analyzed data graphically, in dashboards and reports.
As part of the Microsoft SQL Server MSBI Online training program, aspects covered include introducing the reporting services architecture, report authoring and designing efficient queries, introduction to reporting services design with SQL Server, laying out a report, implementing dashboard-style report objects and building reports. How to use custom .NET code with reports, deploying reports, rendering reports from .NET applications, managing reports, securing reports and delivering Business Intelligence with SSRS, creating reports using Report Builder 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 are other concepts covered under SSRS.
The Microsoft SQL Server MSBI Online Training program has many benefits. First, the course is practical and real time, second one gets certification and third, its highly interactive. The course learner, after training should be able to design data warehouses, deploy and optimize ETL packages, design maps, charts, dashboards, cubes, and conduct MDX queries, expressions and partitioning. An organization benefits from MSBI in ways such as actionable intelligence, real-time decision making, information integration and complete end-to-end solutions, through application of MSBI concepts.
Having pursued this course, one becomes a Business Intelligence developer and there are vast opportunities to work in as almost every company requires an expert in database systems; design, development and analysis of data architectures and warehousing; especially upcoming companies.
