Title:  SSAS 2012: 20 Minute Tabular Model

Speaker: Bill Anton of Prime Data Intelligence, LLC

Abstract:  The Tabular model in Analysis Services 2012 is still the new kid on the block. Based on xVelocity, a new highly compressed in-memory technology, Tabular models promise considerable performance improvements over Multidimensional models in many scenarios. But, as is the case with any new technology, there are certain limitations of which to be aware. Join me in this introductory-level session focusing on how Tabular fits into the Microsoft BI stack, the major factors to consider when choosing between Tabular and Multidimensional technologies, and finally a live demo where we'll build a basic Tabular model in visual studio.
