The book covers PowerPivot, PowerView, and the various ways to create the new tabular projects. If you are looking for something that will cover all aspects of the new tabular abilities in SSAS 2012, I'd recommend this book without hesitation.
Applied Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services: Tabular Modelingby Teo Lachev (Author), Edward Price (Editor) Paperback – February 16, 2012
It covers all important points of designing and implementing Tabular Models and PowerPivot application. It has major chapters on applications for use by individuals, workgroups, and enterprises.
It covers installation, deployment strategy design, configuration, rollout to users, and management of infrastructure in sufficient detail to get projects done. This author writes from the perspective of finishing many projects and sharing his learnings and wisdom with people new to SSAS and BI.
It does NOT cover Multidimensional Models and MDX in any detail, which is GREAT. Those topics are covered well enough by many other authors. This book is well focused and detailed enough to help you get your projects done. It explains theory, concepts, and nomenclature well. You can go from zero to hero in SSAS by reading and applying this book. Strongly recommended.
The title contains the word "Applied", and the book delivers on this promise. It teaches how to design and use Tabular models using SQL Server 2012, how to use DAX and how to design Power View reports. But it also provides excellent guidance on how various techniques, tools and deployment strategies should best be applied in personal, workgroup and enterprise scenarios.
Many IT Professionals getting started with PowerPivot for Excel , PowerPivot for SharePoint or Analysis Services in Tabular mode will find this is the only book they need to launch their first successful Tabular project.
He tenido la posibilidad de leer los libros de Teo a lo largo de los años, y son siempre una fuente de conocimiento, detallados y sobretodo, útiles. este no es una excepción, y mantiene el nivel de la tradición con la alta calidad que uno espera. Teo es uno de los autores que suelo recomendar cuando en mis charlas o conferencias alguien me pregunta por un libro completo acerca de las tecnologias de BI Microsoft.Si a este libro le agregas el de Alberto y Marco acerca de DAX , estarás preparado para divertirte con SQL 2012
