This books is dedicated to everyone who wants or needs to start to enter the big, complex, exciting world of Business Intelligence on the Microsoft platform. A BI solution is made of different tecnologies and specific architecture and design decision, and this book shows to the reader how to properly start a BI solution, avoiding all typical startup problems and doubt, giving advices taken from real-world scenarios. For this reason I’m sure you’ll appreciate the book even if you already have some experience in creating BI solutions.

It covers DWH Design, Analysis Services, Integration Services, Reporting Services and Data Mining: all the things you need to be able to handle in your BI project.

I’ve contributed to write two chapters on Integration Services of this book, and since this is my first book contribution, I’m also particulary proud of it :).

Happy reading!
