SSAS Training Overview

Accelebrate's Introduction to SSAS training teaches attendees best-practice usage of SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services. Note: This course can also be taught using SQL Server 2008 R2.

Note: This course includes an introduction to MDX, but does not provide the same level of depth as our three-day MDX course. If you’re interested in detailed coverage of both SSAS and MDX, please contact us and let us know – we could deliver a customized five-day course covering both SSAS and MDX.
