Professional SQL Server 2000 Data Warehousing with Analysis Services

It has only been roughly 20 months since the first edition of this book was released. That edition covered Microsoft
data warehousing and OLAP Services as it related to the revolutionary Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. Approximately
seven months after that, Microsoft released its new version of SQL Server, SQL Server 2000. This version included many enhancements on an already great product. Many of these came in the area of data warehousing and OLAP Services, which was renamed as "Analysis Services". Therefore, it was important to produce an updated book,
covering these new areas, as well as present the original material in a new, more mature, way. We hope that as you read this book, you will find the answers to most of the questions you may have regarding Analysis Services and Microsoft data warehousing technologies.
