Deserves a broader audience 11 May 2014
By Dimitri Shvorob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The title, and the "Overview" section below it, misrepresent the book and limit its audience by portraying it as a collection of "recipes" for advanced SSAS users. In fact, the book offers a comprehensive tutorial of SSAS Multidimensional, and is suited to beginner and (especially) intermediate audiences. (Beginners can also consider the lighter "Getting started with SQL Server 2012 cube development" by Simon Lidberg, and everybody's learning of MDX should start with "Microsoft SQL Server 2008 MDX Step by Step" by Smith and Clay). Originally I gave the book four stars, but after re-reading it a few months later, I am easily giving it five, recognizing both its quality and its "unique selling proposition" as "the" intermediate SSAS-Multidimensional book on the market.

A Definite book for Business Intelligence (BI) Professionals 11 Jun. 2014
By Pethuru Raj - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I got a golden opportunity to read through the book titled as “SQL Server Analysis Services 2012 Cube Development Cookbook”. This is well-written book for business intelligence (BI) application developers and system administrators. Especially those who are conversant with the Microsoft product “SQL Server Analysis Services” are to be benefited immensely through this easy-to-grasp book. This book gives step-by-step recipes for developing Analysis Services objects that can be composed to craft composite Analytics services that are more business-aware and attuned. Those passionate readers can quickly learn through a flurry of practical examples on deriving robust and resilient BI solutions for a variety of scenarios using the Analysis Services multidimensional model as well as the Tabular model. The book discusses methods beyond the initial cube design, exploring cube maintenance with partitions and designing effective aggregations, as well as options for synchronizing analytics solutions.
This book is stuffed with a number of practical techniques and tips and hence is a definite companion for developers, consultants and administrators to go deeper into the fast-enlarging BI space.
