Creating and managing user accounts in Microsoft Windows SBS 2011

by Drew Hills (MCITP MCSE DCNE SBSC BEngTech (Elec) ) Robert Crane (BE MBA MCP) | April 2012 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

The majority of time administrating a network is spent managing users. Users not only need access to a Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2011 network but they all need access to its resources. The key to good network administration is doing this in the most effective manner. Probably the most important part of a network will be the users. They need access to the resources on the server as well as the services that it provides. To do this securely they are firstly going to need a network login ID that identifies them to the domain. They will typically use this login ID at a workstation connected to the domain.

In this article by Robert Crane and Drew Hills, co-authors of (MCTS): Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard, Configuring (70-169) Certification Guide, we shall look at creating and managing user accounts.

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.
