COURSE DESCRIPTION
With SQL Server 2005, Microsoft provides a complete suite of tools for you to build data
warehouse and business intelligence systems using software from a single vendor. This
course prepares you to deal with the many facets of developing, deploying, operating and
growing a Microsoft data warehouse system.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
This lecture and demo course will provide you a detailed technical introduction to building
a Microsoft data warehouse / business intelligence system that meets the needs of your
business users. The course will provide Microsoft-specific detailed guidance for working
through the data warehouse lifecycle, from requirements gathering and design through the
ETL system, relational data warehouse, OLAP and data mining applications, to reporting
and other BI applications. You will discuss issues around deploying, operating, and
securing the Microsoft data warehouse system.
The focus of the course is architectural: how should you design the components of the
system. We expect our students to be able to read documentation and follow Microsofts
generally straightforward user interfaces. Our goal is to teach you the hard stuff: not which
button to push, but how to design and build a successful Microsoft DW/BI system. The
pace of the course permits only demos by the instructor; do not expect hands-on tutorials
during class time.
PREREQUISITES
Students must understand dimensional modeling. This course supplements, rather than
replaces, the material in other KU courses. Whether or not youve attended one of our
KU courses, be sure to review the key dimensional design concepts prior to attending this
class.
REGISTRATION FEE
The registration fee for this 4-day class is 2.895 per person. This includes four days
of instruction, buffet lunch and morning/afternoon snacks, course materials and a KU
Certificate of Completion. Students also receive a copy of The Microsoft Data Warehouse
Toolkit.
Q4K offers the following discounts. Only one discount may be used.
10% Early Bird discount for students registering by the Early Bird cut-off date
(30 September 2006). Payment must be received before the cut-off date to receive the
discount.
