Feature Session:  Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Automating Your BI Framework

Quite frankly, some aspects of building out a business intelligence solution are tedious. As you cycle through iterations of your star schema, you'll find that even a simple data type change in the data warehouse requires you to make corresponding changes to staging tables, SSIS packages, and SSAS multidimensional or tabular models that take a considerable amount of time to implement. But there's a better, faster way! In this session, we'll explore lessons from a project that required implementation of a framework to easily generate BI objects based on reusable patterns. We'll walk through the decision points in the framework design, review the implementation steps, and see demonstrations of how easily you can make iterative changes to your BI solution's design by using reusable design patterns. Whether you simply want to accelerate change management or reproduce objects in bulk on demand, this session will give you practical tips for automating these processes.
