Designing a Business Intelligence Solution for the Enterprise Using Microsoft SQL Server 2005

Course 2794: Two Days; Instructor-Led

About this Course

Elements of this syllabus are subject to change.
The purpose of this two-day instructor-led course is to teach Business Intelligence (BI) professionals working in enterprise environments to design a BI solution architecture. Students will be taught the importance of keeping all components of the solution and stages of the lifecycle in mind. The first day focuses on foundational standards and practices for the enterprise. The second day focuses on a project-specific lifecycle for capturing requirements and deriving a solution architecture.

This is the first course in the Business Intelligence curriculum and will serve as the entry point for other courses in the curriculum.
