So here, we need to play a little sand and get acquainted with the tools and concepts of SSAS theory.
Be aware that understanding these concepts, while complete, is very simple and fun to make the trip enjoyable.
I will not forget this!

The concepts we learn in this phase are briefly:

  • SSAS architecture (Specify the beginning and end of each SSAS project)

Are you ready to walk?
The sandbox is over!
You have grown up, and now you have to go on SSAS honeymoon.

In this phase, we are going to take six steps together.
In 6 steps, we will learn the whole SSAS, and with the same six steps, we will analyze and implement all SSAS industrial projects.
This is not exciting!
I myself am excited after years of experience in this field.
So let’s go.
Six steps to learn SSAS:

  • Step 1: Read The Data From Different Sources (OLTP or DW)

  • Step 2: Design a Map For It (Schema)

  • Step 3: We Start Building According To The Plan (Construction-Making Cubes and Dimensions)

  • Step 4: Save The Created Project Somewhere (OLAP Database)

  • Step 5: Get The Final Leaks Done (Debugging)

  • Step 6: We Deliver The Final Project To The Customer In The Form Of An Application

Isn’t that exciting?

So trust me and be with me until the end of this journey.

Six steps to implementing an actual project with SSAS:
