To get the most of the presentation layer tools in the Microsoft BI stack when data sources include cubes, PowerPivot workbooks, and data mining models, you can't rely solely on your T-SQL skills.To produce high-performing reports and analytical tools, you'll need to use other query languages like MDX, DAX, or DMX.
In this workshop, you'll learn which languages each presentation layer tool supports and the basic syntax used by each language. You'll also learn how take advantage of query builder tools to help you produce queries until you've developed the proficiency to create more complex queries on your own.
You'll also learn how to work with expressions to add calculations to cubes and PowerPivot workbook, and how to use expressions to customize the appearance of reports, scorecards, and dashboards.
