Good Introductory Book for Microsoft's Analysis Services 5 July 2002
By Srihari Mailvaganam - Published on
Format: Paperback
Microsoft's Analysis Services brings Data Mining and OLAP to the masses. One of the hardest challenges was finding an authoritative guide - this book does an excellent job to rectify the challenge.
Microsoft's Analysis Services makes business intelligence extremely easy to undertake and perform; without a high investment cost. Often OLAP/Data Mining has been made to seem more complicate than necessary. Until recently, the cost of installing an OLAP solution could run into thousands per seat - plus the presence of the prerequisite consultant from the vendor being onsite for many months.
Analysis Services demystifies data analytics in a manner that the Rosetta Stone demystified hieroglyphs. And this book makes it very simple to understand Microsoft's Analysis Services.
To gain the most from this book, readers should generally already have an understanding of what OLAP, Data Mining, Data Warehousing are. Although this is not compulsory, it helps.
For those already familiar with OLAP, ROLAP, Clustering etc; this book will be a very gentle and pleasant read. It will enable you to almost immediately get cracking with Microsoft's Analysis Services.

Good Introduction 31 Jan. 2002
By Mohammad Ahsan - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a fairly good book for some one starting to use Analysis services. If you are a professional and are looking for a reference source then this is not for you. But if you just want something to help you get started... this is a simplified introduction with few useful insights.

This book might not be an exaustive reference, but seems to cover everything you need to know - and that's what counts. It also does so in a readable way.

CD is Virus Infected!!? 9 Nov. 2002
By Ben Russ - Published on
Format: Paperback
I liked the book, but when I went to load the sample software called Proclarity, I got a message from Norton anti-virus that something was afoul in the install routine. Foolishly, I thought that Norton must be wrong. It turns out, I was wrong and the CD apparently had a virus or did something it shouldn't have done.
Immediately after rebooting, my desktop disappeared after opening my first application. The mouse isn't working right either.
So, the book is good. But don't load the sample software from Proclarity. Regarding the rest of the CD, I have not loaded it all, so I can't speak for whether it has any other viruses/problems. Just make sure you have your anti-virus software running. BTW, I'm running XP Pro.
