Business Intelligence & Datawarehousing – Cube Processing Deep Dive – Bob Duffy – April 8th 2014

Ever wondered what actually happens when a cube is “processed”, why it takes so long, how you can configure and optimise cube processing, or what strategies people commonly use for incremental processing ?

This session provides a deep dive into cube processing for MOLAP cubes, to help understand how it works and what you can do to work with it.

Come to this session if you are working with Microsoft Analysis Services from either a development, Administrative or Architectural perspective.

Most of the content is aimed at MOLAP cubes but we will also include a brief discuss on the newer Tabular models.
