Course Description

The purpose of this two-day instructor-led course is to teach Business Intelligence (BI) professionals working in enterprise environments to design a BI solution architecture. Students will be taught the importance of keeping all components of the solution and stages of the lifecycle in mind. The first day focuses on foundational standards and practices for the enterprise. The second day focuses on a project-specific lifecycle for capturing requirements and deriving a solution architecture.

This is the first course in the Business Intelligence curriculum and will serve as the entry point for other courses in the curriculum.



Audience

This course is intended for experienced BI and Microsoft SQL Server professionals. The target students for this course already have an understanding of how to use the SQL Server 2005 tools to implement BI infrastructure and solutions, but need to develop their understanding of design principles and best practices when planning, implementing, and deploying a Business Intelligence architecture and solution.


Prerequisites

Before attending this course, students must:

Have foundational conceptual understanding of data warehousing, data marts, and Business Intelligence. Students must be well-versed on the subjects of data warehousing, data marts, and BI, and preferably have read at least one book by Ralph Kimball or Bill Inmon.

Have conceptual understanding of the components of SQL Server 2005. For example, the online analytical processing (OLAP), extract, transport, and load (ETL), and reporting technologies.

Have practical experience with OLAP, ETL, and Reporting on the SQL Server 2005 Platform. For example, constructing cubes, developing packages, and writing reports.

Have foundational understanding of Microsoft Windows security. For example, how groups, delegation of credentials, and impersonation function in a security context.

Have foundational understanding of Web-based architecture. For example, SSL, SOAP, and IIS-what they are and what their role is.

Already know how to use:

Microsoft Office Visio

Microsoft SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio

Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio

Performance Monitor

Report Builder and Report Manager

Microsoft Visual SourceSafe
