Learn how to use new Visual Studio designers to create OLAP cubes, and then get acquainted with powerful new features such as .NET CLR stored procedures, Key Performance Indicators, Perspectives, Translations, and proactive caching. Understand the business imperative for OLAP as well as its implementation.
