About this course
Elements of this syllabus are subject to change.
The purpose of this 2 day course is to teach Business Intelligence (BI) professionals working in enterprise environments to design a reporting solution architecture that supports their BI solution. Students will go through the entire process-from identifying report data to promoting the reporting solution to production. Students will scale a reporting solution. Students will also be taught best practices for collaborating with application developers to integrate applications and reporting services.
The course focuses on the planning and design aspects of a reporting solution and does not teach you how to create reports or how to use the development tools provided with SQL Server 2005.
Audience profile
This course is intended for experienced BI professionals. The target students for this course already have an understanding of how to use the SQL Server 2005 tools to implement reporting functionality, but need to develop their understanding of design principles and best practices when planning, implementing, and deploying a Reporting Services solution.
At course completion
After completing this course, students will be able to:
  • Design a reporting solution.
  • Develop a reporting solution.
  • Collaborate with application developers to complete reporting and analytical interfaces.
  • Deploy and manage a Reporting Services solution.
  • Design security for a Reporting Services solution.
  • Optimize report execution performance.
Before attending this course, students must:
  • Have hands-on experience with database development tasks. For example:
  • Creating Transact-SQL queries
  • Writing and optimizing advanced queries (for example, queries that contain complex joins or subqueries)
  • Creating database objects such as tables, views, and indexes
  • Have foundational conceptual understanding of Business Intelligence presentation architecture. For example, data source management, the function of pivot tables versus grids versus charts, what drill down and linked reports are, and what schema abstraction (Report Builder) is.
  • Have built Reporting Services reports with Visual Studio or SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio.
  • Have foundational understanding of Web-based architecture. For example, SSL, SOAP, IIS, and WSS/SPS-Web parts-what they are and what their role is.
  • Have foundational understanding of Web-based architecture. For example, SSL, SOAP, and IIS-what they are and what their role is.
  • Have foundational understanding of Microsoft Windows security. For example, how groups, delegation of credentials, and impersonation function in a security context.
  • Already know how to use the following tools:
    • SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio
    • SQL Server Management Studio
    • Performance Monitor
    • SQL Server Profiler
    • Report Builder and Report Manager
