Example text

The cube designer (number 3 in the screenshot) is the main designer in the SSDT in which you will spend most of your time as an SSAS developer. Here, you can view the layout of the cube's measure group and dimensions (number 7 in the screenshot); you can go to different tabs (number 8 in the screenshot), such as Dimension Usage, Partitions, Browser, and KPIs. We will walk through many of these tabs in this chapter. A list of the Measure groups and their measures (number 4 in the screenshot) can be viewed in the Cube Structure tab.

Understanding Grain is important because it defines which dimensions are required. info Data Warehouse Design The star schema There are two different schemas for creating a relationship between fact and dimensions: the snow flake and star schema. In the start schema, a Fact table will be at the center as a hub, and dimensions will be connected to the fact through a single-level relationship. There won't be (ideally) a dimension that relates to the fact through another dimension. The following diagram shows the different schemas: Star Dim Customer Snow Flake Dim Customer Geography Dim Product Dim Customer Fact Sales Dim Product Category Fact Sales Dim Date Dim Store Dim Product Dim Date Dim Store Dim Promotion Dim Promotion The snow flake schema, as you can see in the preceding diagram, contains relationships of some dimensions through intermediate dimensions to the Fact table.

Info Chapter 2 Time for action – creating the first cube There are two ways to create a cube: through Cube Wizard or by creating an empty cube. When we create a cube from the wizard, the relationships between measures and dimensions will be created automatically based on the underlying Data Source View (DSV) after choosing it. However, if we create a cube from an empty one, we need to set up a relationship between the measure groups and dimensions in the cube designer. In the next example, we create the cube using Cube Wizard.
