No time to study during business hours? This intensive 12 week combined instructor-led and self-study virtual night course is constructed around two Microsoft Official Curriculum courses - 10777 and 10778.  They describe how to implement a BI platform to support information worker analytics and how to empower information workers through self-service analytics and reporting.

Sessions are delivered in 2 hour blocks, twice a week and require participants to complete at least the equivalent amount of self-study to be able to meet the rigorous requirements of the course delivery.

Participants will learn how to create a data warehouse with SQL Server 2012, implement ETL with SQL Server Integration Services, and validate and cleanse data with SQL Server Data Quality Services and SQL Server Master Data Services. And will learn how to implement PowerPivot and tabular data models, create and deliver rich data visualizations with Power View and SQL Server Reporting Services, and discover business insights by using data mining

The course helps participants prepare for the exam 70-463: Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 which you will take as part of the last week of the course.

It also assists participants to prepare for exam 70-466: Implementing Data Models & Reports with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 which you will take in your own time following the course completion.
