Book News Annotation:
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services provides users with fast access to data and tools for managing and analyzing data across multidimensional objects. This resource, written for anyone planning to use the latest version of Analysis Services, gives readers insight into the rationale behind Analysis Services functions, and explains practical methods for designing and creating multidimensional objects. Parts I and II are devoted to a formalized description of the multidimensional model implemented in the new version of the OLAP server. Part III explains how to use MDX to query multidimensional data. Parts IV through VII cover practical aspects of loading and storing data in Analysis Services. Parts VIII and IX discuss data access, the architecture of client components, and data protection, along with practical aspects of administering the server and monitoring its activities. Gorbach is a development lead at Microsoft. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
The first book to offer the comprehensive insights professionals need to build enterprise-class OLAP solutions with Analysis Services 2008 rapidly and efficiently. Using this text, developers, architects, and DBA can create solutions that uncover new opportunities and solve real business problems.
About the Author
Irina Gorbach is a senior development lead at Microsoft. She joined the Analysis Services team soon after its creation over 11 years ago. During her work at Microsoft, Irina has designed and developed many features of the Analysis Services product, and was responsible for client subsystem: OLEDB and ADOMD.Net. Irina was in the original group of architects that designed XML for Analysis specification; she worked on the architecture and design of calculation algorithms and currently is working on scalability of Analysis Services.
Alexander Berger was one of the first developers to work on OLAP systems at Panorama, prior to their purchase by Microsoft. After the acquisition, Alexander led the development of Microsoft OLAP Server through all of its major releases prior to SSAS 2008. Currently, Alexander leads the Business Intelligence department for Microsoft adCenter. He is one of the architects of OLEDB for the OLAP standard and MDX language, and holds more than 30 patents in the area of multidimensional databases.
Edward Melomed is one of the original members of the Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services team. He arrived in Redmond as part of Microsoft’s acquisition of Panorama Software Systems, Inc., which led to the technology that gave rise to Analysis Services 2008. He works as a program manager at Microsoft and plays a major role in the infrastructure design for the Analysis Services engine.
