Creating an Analysis Services Cube with Visual Studio 2008 - Part 2

by Jayaram Krishnaswamy | July 2008 | .NET Microsoft

As noted in Part 1, OLAP presents Business Intelligence via what is known as a CUBE. A Cube has many dimensions and it provides a faster method to access the intelligence compared to the structured querying where the overhead of 'Joins' makes it inefficient. Taking the example of a 'Sales' Cube having everything related to sales we can identify the dimensions as the Sales Outlet, The Customers , the Products and the time period over which sales are being audited or looked into. We also notice that there are certain measures that we are interested related to these 'dimensions' like 'Store Sales', 'Cost of Products, 'number of units sold' etc. The Analysis Services analyzes these intricate relationship that exist in a cube. In this part we will see the process of creating a Cube in VS 2008.

Creating an Analysis Services Cube with Visual Studio 2008 - Part 1

by Jayaram Krishnaswamy | July 2008 | .NET Microsoft

A cube in the context of Business Intelligence is a multidimensional representation of business facts that can be accessed quickly to provide specific information. (This can be accomplished by properly written queries in a relational database, but the overhead involved in processing the query, which may involve a large number of 'joins', is simply not efficient). While a relational model is more suited to OLTP, a different model is necessary for OLAP. Whereas highly normalized tables are a norm for OLTP, the model for OLAP does not require normalization. The SQL Server Analysis Services that supersedes the earlier versions is specifically meant for analyzing data in the archives or in OLTP databases to be retrieved and burnished to provide the 'Intelligence' by mining for facts hidden in the data. This two part article by Dr. Jayaram Krishnaswamy describes how a Cube is designed using Visual Studio 2008 and how it may be browsed on the Analysis Server. In Part 1, the necessary items for creating the Cube, namely the Data Source and Data Source Views are described.

Creating Accessible Tables in Joomla!

by Joshue O Connor | November 2007 | Joomla! MySQL Content Management Open Source PHP

Tables got a bad review in accessibility circles, because they used to create complex visual layouts. This was due to the limitations in the support for presentational specifications like CSS and using tables for layout was a hack—that worked in the real world—when you wanted to position something in a precise part of the web page.

Tables were designed to present data of all shapes and sizes, and that is really what they should be used for.

This article by Joshue O Connor, shows how to build a simple table using Joomla! and the features contained within the WYSIWYG editors that can make the table more accessible.

Creating a Web Page for Displaying Data from SQL Server 2008

by Dr.Jay Krishnaswamy | April 2008 | .NET Microsoft

This article by Jayaram Krishnaswamy describes how you may connect to SQL Server 2008 and display the retrieved data in a GridView Control on a web page. Trying to establish a connection to the SQL Server 2008 is not possible in Visual Studio 2008 as you will see soon in the tutorial. One way to get around this, as shown in this tutorial, is to create an ODBC connection to the SQL Server and then using the ODBC connection to retrieve the data.

Visual Studio 2008 Version: 9.0.21022.8 RTM, Microsoft Windows XP Professional Media Center Edition, and SQL Server 'Katmai' were used for this tutorial.
