Developing Business-Driven Self-Service BI – New York

RT @PatrickDBA: Watching @WylieBlanchard1 demo building tabular models at #sqlsatNYC

Continued from SQLSaturday #588 – New York City 2017.

EVENT UPDATE: What an amazing audience at SQL Saturday NYC. Things started off shaky when we encountered technical issues with the video projector at the start of my presentation. After a few minutes of working with the AV staff we decided to cram into a nearby conference room with a working projector and after grabbing a few extra chairs, with a few people standing, we were able to proceed and move the session along smoothly. Luckily, I only loss a few minutes of session time. I’m highly thankful that everyone stuck with me and didn’t leave to attend another session. Overall a great session, a great technical staff, and an even greater audience.

Session Description: 

Speaker(s): Wylie Blanchard

Duration: 70 minutes

Track: BI Platform Architecture, Development & Administration

In this session, we’ll develop a Tabular Data Model in MS SSAS and review our options for deploying, sharing and visualizing it.  Well also discuss how senior leaders will see the business value of SSAS and how end users can utilize it for Self-Service Business Intelligence.
