Jeremy is a Principal Consultant with Adatis, where he specialises in delivering BI and Data Warehousing projects using the Microsoft BI stack. He blogs at http://blogs.adatis.co.uk/blogs/
and is currently writing a book on Master Data Services.
The heart of this session will be an end-to-end technical demo that will show the role of MDS in extracting master data from source systems, before demonstrating how data is fed via MDS to subscribing downstream systems. Whilst the focus of the session will be on MDS, other parts of the Microsoft BI stack will be shown, in order to demonstrate how a Microsoft MDM solution complements existing parts of SQL Server.
This session will be an in-depth look at what the MDS business rules are and how they work, including a series of demos and guidance on how the rules are built. SharePoint Workflow will also be covered, as MDS can initiate a SharePoint workflow.
Master Data Services has been given an overhaul in Denali, including a new Excel add-in and modified web front-end. Come to this session to see how MDS can be used to give greater control and process to your BI/DW dimension management.
