I saw the post on Chris’s blog that the final draft of of the “Business Intelligence Architecture and Design Guide” on gotdotnet had been released. I also took a look at the OLAP section and had a little more positive of a reaction than Chris. Without reading too far, I had found some things that weren’t overly obvious that I hadn’t thought about yet that I could apply to some of the projects I’m working on. I’ll probably blog about some of them in the next few days.
However, I did notice that while the document contained good info on SSAS, it could use some editing – and I’ll probably pass on my suggestions there. I’m not a great writer but for some reason, I tend to notice typo and sentence structure errors a lot in publications. Maybe that is a way I can contribute to the project.
I agree with Chris in that it isn’t a super detailed document, but I imagine that for someone who knows a little about SSAS and has built a cube or two and wants to know more, that it is a good reference for getting more knowledge and experience to help take their cube design to the next level.
