Mission Accomplished!

It was a challenging journey, but you have arrived and are certified.

The role of a Cube Developer is to build tabular and MOLAP cubes that allow users to report using Excel or other reporting tools. Some companies merge this role with the generic BI Developer role. The Cube Developer should have MDX and DAX querying skills to build easy calculations for the report writers.

RECOMMENDED BOOKS

There are three books that focus on the hardest part of SSAS: modeling, DAX and MDX. These topics don’t change frequently and viewing a book for a slightly older version of SQL Server is perfect to get your bearings.
