Featured Presentation:

Adding CLR and ADO MD to your BI Toolbox

Viktor Radu, Lead BI Developer M.C. Dean, Inc.

Just in case it's fallen off your radar - SQL CLR Integration is still there and can be a useful tool when building applications that rely on SQL Server. We'll start by looking at some basics of SQL CLR Integration. It's also no secret that the MDX learning curve is pretty steep and getting beyond basics requires significant study. In the second part of this presentation, we'll learn how to use ADO MD wrapped in CLR stored procedures to bring multidimensional data back into the two-dimensional world of SQL, thus greatly simplifying cube design and MDX queries. Finally, we'll examine some Dos and Don'ts of this approach and look at some examples of its utilization by getting rid of rugged hierarchies and by simplifying some complex MDX queries.

About Viktor:
A Ukraine native, Viktor abandoned PHP and C++ for the shiny new world of .NET and SQL Server in 2006. Since then he has worked on multiple web and desktop applications, and now leads a team of developers building an enterprise Business Intelligence solution at M.C. Dean, Inc., an electrical construction company headquartered in Dulles, VA.
