The basic operational design of a computer system is called its architecture. John von Neumann, a pioneer in computer design, is credited with the architecture of most computers in use today. A typical von Neumann system has three major components: the central processing unit (CPU), or microprocessor; physical memory; and input/output
(I/O). In von Neumann architecture (VNA) machines, such as the 80×86 family, the CPU is where all the computations of any applications take place. An application is simply a combination of machine instructions and data.
This is a book built on a presumption, and that presumption is about you. It presumes that you have C# experience. It presumes that you know your way around the .NET Framework.
Well, I apologize up front. In law school, I learned that a presumption may be no more than an assumption that becomes the foundation of a faulty argument. In this case, we might be building our foundation on quicksand.
In this Introduction, I will attempt to fortify your knowledge a bit, with the aim of shortening the distance between the average reader and the expert, so that all will profit from the remainder.
Windows Phone is an OS which is also a platform in itself and provides an opportunity for application developers to build their apps and sell them on the Windows Phone Marketplace.

More than 100 recipes to develop Business Intelligence solutions using Analysis Services
Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system. As a database, it is a software product whose primary function is to store and retrieve data as requested by other software applications. SQL Server Analysis Services adds OLAP and data mining capabilities for SQL Server databases. OLAP (online analytical processing) is a technique for analyzing business data for effective business intelligence.
This practical guide teaches you how to build business intelligence solutions using Microsoft’s core product – SQL Server Analysis Services. The book covers the traditional multi-dimensional model which has been around for over a decade as well as the tabular model introduced with SQL Server 2012.
Starting with comparing MultiDimensional and tabular models – discussing the values and limitations of each, you will then cover the essential techniques for building dimensions and cubes. Following on from this, you will be introduced to more advanced topics, such as designing partitions and aggregations, implementing security, and synchronizing databases for solutions serving many users.
The book also covers administrative material, such as database backups, server configuration options, and monitoring and tuning performance. We also provide a primer on MultiDimensional eXpressions (MDX) as well as Data Analysis expressions (DAX) languages.
This book provides you with data cube development techniques, and also the ongoing monitoring and tuning for Analysis Services.
A practical cookbook packed with recipes to help developers produce data cubes as quickly as possible by following step by step instructions, rather than explaining data mining concepts with SSAS.
If you are a BI or ETL developer using SQL Server Analysis services to build OLAP cubes, this book is ideal for you. Prior knowledge of relational databases and experience with Excel as well as SQL development is required.
