SQLBI Methodology with Marco Russo

Proposal for FULL DAY seminar. When it comes to implementing a data warehouse using the SQL Server suite, you have to make several SQL Server-specific decisions about technology and implementation that could mean the difference between the success or failure of your data warehouse project. This session will introduce you to the SQLBI Methodology—an approach has been developed over the years to account for all the architectural and technological decisions that you have to make when implementing a complete Business Intelligence solution using SQL Server, Integration Services, and Analysis Services. This methodology is focused on medium to large data warehouses, but with a reduced overhead compared to the classic Kimball methodology, you can use it for small data warehouses too. The big advantage of the SQLBI Methodology is flexibility in terms of design and maintenance. You can download SQLBI Methodology draft papers at http://www.sqlbi.com/sqlbimethodology.
