Upcoming Class Dates

  • August 5th, 2019 - @Home-QS ($2975 USD)

Description

This Microsoft SharePoint 2013 End to End Business Intelligence Boot Camp course is a complete high-level tour of the Microsoft Business Intelligence stack. It introduces students to the SQL 2012 Business Intelligence and SharePoint 2013 Business Intelligence services including PerformancePoint Service, Excel Services, Business Connectivity Services, Visio Services and the Business Intelligence Center focusing on their interdependency. Each of the modules is stand-alone allowing for customization of the course for those audiences that may not have an interest in a certain service. Each concept is demonstrated with a video before the exercise on that concept, so first you will have the short lecture then see the concept demonstrated then do it yourself. Remember if you can't do it you didn't learn it. Each of the videos, and there are approximately 13 hours of them, is intended as a take-away from the class for each student
