Since 2012 I have seen many companies adopting SQL Server Analysis Services Tabular as the analytical engine for their product or service. I think that this is still a fraction of the companies that might do the same choice. Why? Because…
The features already existing in Tabular might be enough to justify its adoption as analytical engine.
This short statements needs more explanations, so I wrote a longer article titles SSAS Tabular as Analytical Engine, which is available also as a downloadable PDF that can be read offline and shared by mail. There are many other companies that are looking for an analytical engine for their applications. I hope that the experiences I tried to share will help these companies to better evaluate whether Tabular could be a model good for their needs or not.
Have you made this choice? Have you considered (and maybe adopted) other products in one of the described scenarios?
