Preconference Seminar (Friday April 26, 2013)
This year we are happy to announce that SQL Saturday in Jacksonville will be offering a preconference seminar. The seminar will be held on Friday April 26, 2013 at the same location as SQL Saturday but in a different building (University of North Florida Campus, Main Campus, 1 UNF Drive, Jacksonville, FL 32224. Building 15). Prepare yourself for a full day of SQL Server Business Intelligence with Brian Knight (SQL Server MVP and author) and Devin Knight (author).
Building a SQL Server 2012 BI Platform
Presenters: Brian Knight (@brianknight) and Devin Knight (@knight_devin)
In this day-long seminar, you'll learn how to build a Business Intelligence solution for your company and support it with the Microsoft platform. We'll start with how to design and data model a data warehouse, including the system preparation. Then, we'll jump into using SQL Server Integration Services to load the data warehouse.
After the data warehouse is loaded, you're ready to roll up the data and provide slice and dice reporting with SQL Server Analysis Services. We'll walk through cube development and enriching your cubes with added business metrics, which are essential for your future dashboards. Last, we'll cover how to report against the data warehouse with SQL Server Reporting Services and SharePoint BI. Make sure you bring your own optional laptop so you can follow along as we design, load, and report against our BI solution.
When: Friday April 26, 2013
Where: University of North Florida Campus, Main Campus, 1 UNF Drive, Jacksonville, FL 32224. Building 15
