The business intelligence space includes a number of products and capabilities – it is sometimes hard to keep up. May I recommend an excellent book, published late 2010. The book, Knight’s Microsoft Business Intelligence 24-Hour Trainer is an excellent book to review or learn the rudiments of the wide span of products supporting BI from Microsoft. Like several of Brian Knight’s most recent books, it is published by WROX and is sold on Amazon and even your local bookstore.
The topics covered are very diverse, from dimensional modeling to working with SSIS, SSAS and SSRS. Advanced topics include data mining, building a dashboard, several chapters on PowerPivot and a great survey of the new BI powers of Sharepoint 2010. Like many of Brian’s books, it is accompanied by an interactive CD where coursework is discussed. Great book – I highly recommend it.
