SQL Server Reporting Services 2016 contains significant new functionality and improvements over its predecessors including the new Reporting Services Web portal, support for mobile reports and dashboards, a new HTML5 rendering engine, and exciting new report design enhancements. Three of the five days are reserved for SSRS, with the remaining two days providing an introduction to SSIS and SSAS services. Students requiring in-depth coverage of SSIS and SSAS as well as SSRS should attend the 3-daySQL Server 2016 Reporting Services course followed by the SQL Server 2016 Business Intelligence: Integration Services and Analysis Services course, which provides 5 days of coverage for SSIS and SSAS capabilities. An 8-day training pass is available for $3,590. All reports are developed utilizing SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT), however the new 2016 Report Designer is also introduced. Students will complete hands-on exercises creating a number of reports including table-based, cross tabular and forms based designs. Reports utilizing the newly designed charts, gauges, KPIs, spark lines, data bars and tree maps will be built. Exercises will incorporate the use of report parameters and features such as drill down, interactive sorting, hyperlinks, book marks and report maps. Consuming data from relational, multi-dimensional and the new tabular data sources will be incorporated into report designs. Students will become familiar with report deployment to the new Reporting Service Web Portal (replaced Report Manager) and learn how to use portal the management tools to configure report caches, snapshots and subscriptions. Instruction and practice in designing report security to insure protection of enterprise data will be provided. The student will gain experience with the new Report Services Web portal, which enables publishing content other than paginated reports, such as Excel and Power BI. Students will also learn how to include KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) directly from a shared data set. Finally the student will apply custom branding of the Web portal. One day is reserved for SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). Students will learn the basics of creating SSIS packages using SQL Server Data Tools to create Extract Transform and Load solutions used to populate data warehouses and marts. In the final day, based on a populated data warehouse they have created, students will then learn how to develop an SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) multidimensional (cube) model using Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) syntax. Cubes will be customized to include Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), Calculated Members, Named Sets, Navigational Hierarchies, and Perspectives. Also, a brief introduction to the SSAS Tabular module will be provided. Students Will Learn: Installing and configuring SQL Server Reporting Services Designing reports using SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) Creating multi-dimensional, two-dimensional and tabular data sources and sets Using the Tablix object to display information in Tables, Matrix (pivot tables) and free form Lists Using visualization objects to create Charts, Spark Lines, Data Bars and Tree Maps Adding images, page headers and footers and report metadata Including report parameterization enabling filtering by users Configuring report interactivity, including drill-downs, report maps and book marks Linking to parameterized child reports via hyperlinks or sub-reports Creating calculated fields and custom report formatting Deploying reports to the new Reporting Services Web Portal Configuring report snapshots, caches and subscriptions Securing reports and data sources Creating SSIS and SSAS projects using SQL Server Data Tools General design overview of SSIS ETL package development Deploying and scheduling SSIS packages and projects Creating SSAS multidimensional models Introduction to MDX Customizing cubes using MDX Deploying, securing and accessing data in SSAS cubes Prerequisites: Familiarity with database concepts, Windows desktop navigation and software installation techniques. Attendance at our SQL Programming course or Microsoft Transact-SQL Programming course is highly recommended although not required.

Prior to each class they examine the geographical location of the enrolled students and then select a venue that will provide most convenient overall access for the students. Classes are held in hotel conference rooms and exact location is determined 2 weeks prior to the course date.
