2010 PASS Summit Post-Con Preview - Davide Mauri

We have another post this morning.  This one  is from Davide Mauri, who will be presenting Creating a BI solution from A to Z - you can find more about his session here: http://sqlpass.eventpoint.com/topic/details/BIA281P.

Is there an audience that would benefit especially from this session?
Sure. The session is especially targeted to everyone who’s making the first steps in the BI world and want to start with the right foot. The workshop is not only a description of how a BI solution can be built, but also aims to give a lot of advices and best practices to avoid common errors and problem, being able to create a BI solution that is both sound and flexible.

After having attended your seminar, what are two or three things that an attendee will be able to take back to the office and put to use right away?
Way more than three. They will be able to design and create a datawarehouse, load and process a cube and produce reports. In addition they will be the first to have access to a new tool that I’m developing that will reduce drastically (by a factor of more than 30) the time needed to handle dimension loading!

Some insight will also be previewed here:

What background should attendees ideally have to be fully prepared for your seminar?
Knowledge of T-SQL and SQL Server Engine is enough.

What experience are you, as a speaker, bringing to this session?
I’ll try to put all I’ve learned in the last seven years (since SQL Server 2005 was born) of developing BI solution on the SQL Server platform and all the best practices and the working methodology acquired at service of attendees.
I wouldn’t have missed such workshop if at the beginning of my career I would have a change to attend to it!
