SQL Server 2012 Tutorial for beginners: Analysis Services - Data Mining (w/ minimal setup)


  • I am looking for a simple tutorial for SQL Server 2012 SSAS and DM, for non-CS (business) students. Ideally based on the AdventureWorksDW DB that comes with SQL server. I've seen "SQL Server 2012 Tutorials: Analysis Services - Data Mining" by MSFT, but it requires a long list of setup steps, to create a data source, the cube, models etc. Similarly with the tutorial here:

    Is there an existing project my students can just load into SQL server (cube / models etc) and immediately start playing with: i.e. visualizing and exploring a cube, running built-in DM algorithms and understanding the results etc? Can you send a link, necessary steps?
