Every business has a reams of business data locked away in databases, business systems, and spreadsheets. While you may be able to build some reports by pulling a few of these repositories together, actually performing any kind of analysis on the data that runs your business can range from problematic to impossible. Pro SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services will show you how to pull that data together and present it for reporting and analysis in a way that makes the data accessible to business users, instead of needing to rely on the IT department every time someone needs a different report.

  • Accessible–With a single author's voice, this book conducts a guided tour through the technology that makes it easy to dive into.
  • Solution–oriented–While technically deep, the goal is to focus on practical application of the technologies instead of acting as a technical manual.
