No, this session does not have anything to do with high fashion or catwalks. This session is an introduction to dimensional modelling and how it applies to Analysis Services. We will introduce what it is, how it’s done and look at the features that Analysis Services provides to support some of the different modelling techniques. The focus of this session will be around the various types of dimension usage in Analysis Services, looking at regular relationships, fact relationships, many-to-many relationships and reference relationships.
