In this technical course, professionals will learn to create dimensions, cubes, measure groups, and measures. Our enterprise training program is best for large companies and organizations. It teaches individuals to create a multi-dimensional database using analysis services and enables them to use MDX syntax. This training program also helps professionals develop a conceptual understanding of the architecture, components, and nature of a BI solution. By the end of the course, trainees will learn to utilize data mining for predictive analysis, customize a cube, and implement dimensions. This training program is suitable for data analysts and power information workers who want to build credibility. It is also ideal for individuals who are preparing for exams 70-768.

This training is designed based on the objectives of the course variant 20768C.

Prerequisites for this training

    why choose us



    I was sceptical at first whether to enrol with Microtek Learning or not, however, I am glad that I did- I got everything that was promised (maybe more). The trainer was very patient and knowledgeable and with his effort and mine, I was able to clear the exam with ease! Keep up the good work everyone.

    I was recommended the ITIL 4 Foundation course by an IT professional who had completed the same course at Microtek Learning. The training gave me a thorough understanding of service management that I felt I could take back to my job as an IT Project Management and apply it to improve the value of products and services.
