550€

Microsoft SQL Server

Acest curs este conceput pentru a lua o persoană de la începutul interogărilor MDX. Primele capitole (1-4) contin informatii fundamentale, apoi se extind. Participantii vor înțelege tiparele, iar de la ele vor putea examina exemplele și vor putea construi pe ele pentru a codifica propriile întrebări sofisticate.
Interogări precum:
Care sunt primii 5 clienți pe țări în ultimele 8 trimestre?
Care este punctul nostru de reorganizare pe baza nivelurilor inventarului?
Care sunt clienții noștri cei mai buni în ceea ce privește volumul și profitul brut?
Ce efect are costul de transport maritim asupra profitabilității pe o distribuție geografică?
Cum calculam Anul din valoarea de tip Date?
Cum facem cresterea de la an la an?
Când ne uităm la fabricație, cum ne raportăm doar la zilele lucrătoare?
Dacă trecutul este vreun indicator al viitorului, atunci acest curs va fi urmărit în special de către profesioniștii SQL, Microsoft Analysis Service, dezvoltatorii de rapoarte și profesioniștii în domeniul Business Intelligence.
De ce acest curs poate fi pentru tine:
Compania dvs.  implementează Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services.
Organizația dvs. implementează Departamentul de Business Intelligence cu un Data Mart.
Vrei să dezvolți un set de competențe cu o cerere ridicată.
Organizația dvs. vă dorește să obțineți pregătire în MDX pentru a vă putea construi analize avansate.
