This is one of the first academic courses in the world to teach students on SQL Server 2012 for Business Intelligence.

  • Use the Business Intelligence Development Studio to develop BI database objects
  • Use SQL Server Management Studio to operate and maintain BI database objects
  • Use Business Intelligence Development Studio for designing and debugging BI applications
  • Understand that SQL Server 2012 provides many options to deviate from generic database design, by eliminating or virtualizing different components
  • Evaluate different end user tools to explore data
  • This course has a particular emphasis on real world applications and skills. Topics covered include:

    • SQL Server Management Studio
    • SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio
