1 hour, 14 minutes, 54 seconds

Slides (view online)
With the introduction of BISM Tabular in Microsoft SQL Server 2012, you have two options for a new project. BISM Multidimensional, formerly known as UDM, is still an option. In this session, see a comparison between the two “engines” available in Analysis Services to learn when they are similar and when they are different. Learn what to choose and why, depending on your requirements. #TEDBI319

    Great informative and entertaining session that includes examples showing the performance gains that are possible with Tabular and DAX !

    I liked it very much.
    I knew Alberto Ferrari and Marco Russo in Milan , in SQL SERVER 2012 CONFERENCE, and i appreciate a lot them, they really are very good teachers...

    I think it is a very good video about TABULAR vs MULTIDIMENSIONAL that clarify a lot of doubts about which of them to use.

    Besides i am interested to buy their new book...i think it will be very useful ....

    The only pain is that TABULAR you can use only if you buy an ENTERPRISE VERSION...it is a pity....

    You can use Tabular also with the Business Intelligence version of SQL Server. Only the Standard version does not include Tabular.
