MCSE SQL Server 2012 Business Intelligence

MCSE SQL Server 2012 Business Intelligence

Enabling Business Intelligence and Reporting Engineers to go beyond the basic mechanics of SQL Server, this course will show students how to design, build and deploy Business Intelligence applications in an enterprise-class environment. Upon completion of this intensive, hands-on course, participants will have the knowledge and skills required to earn the MCSE Business Intelligence qualification and to design world-class BI applications.

Business Intelligence analysts and reporting engineers will gain a complete understanding of using SQL Server as the foundation for building BI and reporting solutions, backed by a solid appreciation of the technology platform that runs behind the scenes. Reporting engineers and analysts will be particularly interested in learning to query data directly using T-SQL and extending these techniques to build complete Business Intelligence solutions. They will gain a complete understanding of the database system and how to extract the information they need in the most efficient way.

The course is best suited to:

  • Business intelligence analysts who need to know more about building BI platforms.
  • Reporting engineers who need to know more about extracting the information they need from corporate datstores.
  • Systems administrators who will be responsible for configuring, deploying and managing BI systems.
  • BI consultants who need to earn an industry-recognised qualification.
  • Individuals wanting to facilitate a career-change.

Combining instructor led videos with self-study resources, the MCSE SQL Server Business Intelligence course is delivered online, so that contents are available anyplace anytime as required. A built-in social networking platform also allows participants to ask questions and share knowledge and experience with their peers, providing additional opportunities for learning.

By completing this course students will not only fully understand the concepts behind Microsoft SQL Server, but also develop the skills needed to build BI applications that deliver the information and insights demanded in a real world environment. They will also be ready to sit and pass the MCSE SQL Server Business Intelligence exam.

Key learning points

Completing the five modules included in this course will help BI analysts and report engineers develop all the skills and knowledge required to pass the MCSE Business Intelligence exams and prepare them for a successful career in data modelling and reporting. The first three modules take them through the basic and advanced SQL server concepts to ensure that they fully understand the database infrastructure that will underpin their BI systems.

Continuing towards BI mastery, the fourth module covers building and implementing advanced multi-dimensional data models:

  • How to work with large datasets across multiple platforms as is common in most modern BI applications and reports.
  • Building Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) cubes and supporting structures such as pivot tables, PowerPivot solutions and Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) to deliver information quickly and efficiently to analysts.
  • Choosing between the Unified Dimensional Model (UDM) and Business Intelligence Semantic models according to specific business data and reporting needs.
  • Developing complex SQL queries to mine multiple datasets and building reports using Crescent.

The final module will help Business Information architects apply and extend the content of the previous lessons to build BI solutions that extract additional value from corporate data and provide a platform for future expansion by:

  • Designing BI solutions that meet current and future performance and scalability needs.
  • Using Excel Services and Sharepoint Reporting integration to allow for improved data analysis and integration with other line of business applications.
  • Designing, deploying and managing SSIS packages to extend BI application functionality and expose more data for reporting and modelling.

Business Intelligence analysts will also study the SQL Server fundamentals needed to design and build data warehousing and reporting solutions that meet the changing information needs of a growing enterprise. From querying and manipulating data using T-SQL, to deploying and managing SQL Server in a clustered, data warehouse scenario, students will have a full understanding of how the platform works too.

Advantages of this course

Web-accessible course materials allow BI engineers to follow the course at their own pace, in their own time. The MCSE SQL Server 2012 Business Intelligence course is essential for data engineers and BI analysts, delivering:

  • A solid understanding of how to query SQL Server datasets and extract BI data.
  • Build queries and views for advanced reporting and data export.
  • All the training and resources needed to prepare for the MCSA SQL Server and MCSE Business Intelligence exams.
  • The opportunity to develop real-world skills to back up database and Business Intelligence application design theory.
  • Full understanding of the install, configuration and maintenance procedures required to deliver optimum performance and reliability for BI applications.
  • In-depth understanding of BI principles and how to engineer suitable systems using Microsoft technologies.
  • Master the techniques required to query and manipulate data using T-SQL.
  • Construct, deploy and manage an advanced SQL Server data warehouse with BI-focused applications and services.

The MCSE SQL Server and Business Intelligence course is essential for IT professionals who want to improve their database and BI design and reporting skills, or to gain the knowledge and experience required to pass their MCSA and MCSE exams.

Students can expect to boost their job prospects and employability as they acquire new expert-level skills and experience in both SQL Server and its use for Business Intelligence applications and reporting.
