Getting More from Analysis Services – Writing Data Back

Speaker: Rob Long, Chief Architect Talavant

Summary: Excel power users have become accustomed to pivot tables displaying data from an Analysis Services Cube. What happens when they want to “tweek” things in what-if-analysis or make future projections? SSAS writeback measure groups allow for these scenarios. In this demo-centric session we’ll see what it takes to setup and use a writeback enabled measure group. We will work through a specific but simple business use-case to help reinforce the overall process.
