Our next Atlanta Microsoft BI meeting will be on Monday, January 27th. The main presentation is “Bus Matrix – the Foundation of your Dimensional Data Model” the speaker is Bill Anton. The meeting will be sponsored by TEK Systems. I hope you can make it.
The Bus Matrix is the cornerstone of a successful Dimensional Data Modeling strategy. It serves many purposes: from communicating requirements, capabilities, and expectations with the business users down to the prioritization and delegation of tasks across the development team. Join me in this session and learn what a Bus Matrix is, why it is the single most important document in your Data Warehouse project, and what can go wrong without it. We’ll also cover several approaches for creating and maintaining the Bus Matrix.
Bill Anton is an independent consultant whose primary focus is designing and developing Data Warehouses and Business Intelligence solutions using the Microsoft BI stack. When he’s not working with clients to solve their data-related challenges, he can usually be found answering questions on the MSDN forums, attending PASS meetings, or writing blog posts over at byoBI.com.
