Completed – SQL Server Analysis Services workshop – Mumbai, April 2012

Hi Friends,

In April this year (2012), I delivered an advanced Analysis Services workshop for one of the leading financial institutions of the world.

This workshop was delivered after I completed my hectic side-by-side delivery of SQL Server DBA & SQL Server BI assignment with another client in March. I talked about the SQL Server Database Administration and Performance Tuning workshop here:

And I talked about SQL Server Business Intelligence workshop here:

This SQL Server training assignment in India was organized by Peopleware India

Delivering SQL Server Analysis Services training to financial institutions is always a challenge; primarily because of the vertical and all the financial calculations that need to be implemented while building a solution in SQL Server Analysis Services. During this workshop, I made sure, I spend good amount of time with Dimensional modeling and Account Intelligence feature of Analysis Services. I also demoed Many-to-Many Dimensional model with the classic example of Joint Bank accounts. On the last day, we spent considerable amount of time with MDX; and MDX always gets tiring beyond a point 🙂


The audience was fun to work with. They matched my speed of executing labs. I am glad, at the end, my participants were very happy with the overall delivery. Furthermore, I was happy to see many intelligence questions coming from them. Waiting to do another assignment for them sometime soon!

I was glad to make new friends, as always.

Here are is the Pic from the class:

About Amit Bansal

Amit Bansal is always brainstorming around SQL Server. Despite working with SQL since 1997, he is amazed that he keeps learning new things every single day. SQL Server is AB's first love, and his wife does not mind that. He tries to share as much and spreads the SQL goodness. Internals and Performance Tuning excites him, and also gives him sleepless nights at times, simply because he is not a genius, but quite a hard worker and does not give up. It has been a long and exciting journey since 1997, you can read here: He is on Twitter:
