Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services – The BISM Tabular Model #ssas #tabular #bism

I, Alberto and Chris spent many months (many nights, holidays and also working days of the last months) writing the book we would have liked to read when we started working with Analysis Services Tabular. A book that explains how to use Tabular, how to model data with Tabular, how Tabular internally works and how to optimize a Tabular model. All those things you need to start on a real project in order to make an happy customer. You know, we’re all consultants after all, so customer satisfaction is really important to be paid for our job!

Now the book writing is finished, we’re in the final stage of editing and reviews and we look forward to get our print copy. Its title is very long: Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services – The BISM Tabular Model. But the important thing is that you can already (pre)order it.

This is the list of chapters:

  • 01. BISM Architecture
  • 02. Guided Tour on Tabular
03. Loading Data Inside Tabular
  • 04. DAX Basics
  • 05. Understanding Evaluation Contexts
  • 06. Querying Tabular
  • 07. DAX Advanced
  • 08. Understanding Time Intelligence in DAX
  • 09. Vertipaq Engine
  • 10. Using Tabular Hierarchies

  • 12. Using Advanced Tabular Relationships
  • 13. Tabular Presentation Layer
  • 14. Tabular and PowerPivot for Excel
  • 15. Tabular Security
  • 16. Interfacing with Tabular
  • 17. Tabular Deployment
  • 18. Optimization and Monitoring
