This recorded video course covers the Tabular modeling in Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services 2016 workshop.

The very content we deliver in classroom courses is now available in recorded format, at your fingertips. No knowledge of previous version of Analysis Services – Multidimensional – is required; Tabular is based on different concepts and on the DAX language, rather than MDX.

This video course was refreshed in 2016 and covers all the new features introduced by Analysis Services 2016, like the new DirectQuery engine, the integrated workspace, and bidirectional filter propagation in relationships.

In order to complete your training on Analysis Services Tabular, after this video course you should follow the Mastering DAX video course. In the Mastering DAX video course, you will learn how to write complex measures and queries using the DAX language, which is just shortly introduced in the SSAS Tabular video course.


Students of the video course have access to a private discussion area where they can interact with the instructors asking questions related to the lectures and the exercises.

  • Stefan Hedengren (May 21, 2020)

    Great course to get a good understanding of Tabular - feeling more comfortable to take a Tabular assignment after watching this.

  • Andrei Bulatov (May 9, 2020)

    Gracia! Very nice course indeed!

  • Andres Cuñarro (May 3, 2020)

    The course is very straightforward and easy to follow. A good way to get important concepts and tips to then submerge in more lectures and practice.

  • Igor Celik (Dec 22, 2019)

    Excellent, Thanks guys!

  • Leonardo Russo (Nov 8, 2019)

    Grazie e complimenti per il corso. Semplice da seguire ma allo stesso tempo dettagliato e pratico. ps Sarebbe bello averne anche uno per SSAS MD.

  • Andreas Ratz (Jul 17, 2019)

    Very experienced coaches present the content excellent and with and with the typical Italian charm ;-)

  • Jacky Gabizon (Feb 21, 2019)

    Great course ! I enjoyed it very much and dentally will revisit. Hope to see the 2017 updates coming soon to this course.

  • Umberto Actis Perino (Nov 8, 2018)

    Very good course with lots of tips and technical insights. It would be great to add exercises and quizzes in each module, to practice and test the necessary skills.

  • Sergey Altukhov (Feb 22, 2018)

    Great course, thanks a lot

  • Sarah Bessard (Feb 22, 2018)

    Great job ! Thanks for this training

  • Clay Seifert (Feb 20, 2018)

    This video course was outstanding. It's a pleasure to have instructors with hands-on experience in using the product because they can present the material that includes suggestions on matters to be aware of. Let me close out this review by giving my unrestrictive recommendation to those considering taking this video course. It is money well spent!!!!! Clay Seifert

  • Francisco Tapia (Dec 16, 2017)

    This a very through explanation of Tabular with SSAS. If you are familiar with Sql and are getting into business intelligence, this course is perfect for getting you started with the engine.

  • Lyn Taylor (Dec 13, 2017)

    Very helpful and well organized to understand Analysis Services. Will refer to this course as we build and deploy models.

  • Hans Bamesberger (Jul 1, 2017)

    I think that Alberto´s and Marco´s video courses cannot be topped. Simply the best. Not just professional content but also a lot of passion. I think after attending their course every student wants to become a BI professional. Many thanks to the twins Alberto and Marco.

  • VICTOR RUIZ (May 31, 2017)

    It was exactly what I was looking for! THANK YOU! EXCELENT JOB!
