This two-day course provides students with an overview of the project design process, from designing the logical data model and physical schema for the data warehouse to creating a project in MicroStrategy Architect.
Students first learn about the role of MicroStrategy Architect in supporting various project functions. Next, students discover ways to design a logical data model and physical schema in preparation for creating a MicroStrategy project. Finally, students learn about the project creation process, including how to work with tables, facts, attributes, and user hierarchies to create a fully-functioning MicroStrategy project.
Throughout this course, students get hands-on practice with designing and creating MicroStrategy projects via a series of exercises.
