Course Overview

The Implementing and Maintaining Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services M2791 instructor-led training course has been designed to teach candidates how to implement an Analysis Services solution in an organisation. The course discusses how to use the Analysis Services development tools to create an Analysis Services database and an OLAP cube, and how to use the Analysis Services management and administrative tools to manage an Analysis Services solution.

Target Audience

Candidates who should consider attending the M2791 Microsoft training course are information technology (IT) professionals and developers who need to implement analysis solutions by using Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services.

Course Objectives

On successfully completing the M2791 course, candidates will be able to:
  • Describe how SQL Server Analysis Services can be used to implement analytical solutions
  • Create multidimensional analysis solutions with SQL Server Analysis Services
  • Implement dimensions in an Analysis Services solution
  • Implement measures and measure groups in an Analysis Services solution
  • Query a multidimensional Analysis Services solution
  • Customise an Analysis Services cube
  • Deploy and Secure an Analysis Services database
  • Maintain a multidimensional Analysis Services solution
  • Implement a Data Mining solution

Course Prerequisites

Candidates attending the M2791 Microsoft training course should have a conceptual understanding of OLAP solutions. Candidates are also required to have experience with: navigating the Microsoft Windows Server environment; Windows services (starting and stopping); creating service accounts and permissions; Microsoft SQL Server, including SQL Server Agent, SQL Server query language (SELECT, UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE), SQL Server System tables and SQL Server accounts (users and permissions).

Testing and Certification

There are currently no exams or Microsoft Certification directly associated to this course however this course may assist in preparing candidates for other exams that are closely associated with this technology.
