Tabular Modeling in Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services
Marco Russo and Alberto Ferrari walk students step-by-step through creating powerful data models, and then illuminate advanced features such as optimization, deployment, and scalability. Tabular Modeling in Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services will be indispensable for everyone moving to Analysis Services Tabular, regardless of their previous experience with tabular-style models or with Microsoft's older Analysis Services offerings. It will also be an essential follow-up for every reader of the authors' highly-praised Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services: The BISM Tabular Model.
This book provides a complete and updated guide to the features available in Analysis Services 2016 for the Tabular model only, targeting different audiences from the authors' previous book on Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services: those who have never used Analysis Services Tabular, and existing BI developers who already use previous versions of Analysis Services and want to learn Microsoft's new features in detail and depth.
