Microsoft SQL Server 2012: The BISM Tabular Model is now available to buy!

with 3 comments

I decided to wait until I had a real, physical, made-of-dead-tree copy of it in my hands before blogging, but I’m pleased to announced that the new book that Marco, Alberto and I wrote on SSAS 2012 Tabular models is now available to purchase (even though, as Marco says here it was actually officially released a few weeks ago).

A sample chapter can be found here:

You can buy it all all good bookshops, including Amazon UK. It has two five-star reviews on Amazon already, and Javier Guillén wrote a very detailed review here. Why not buy several copies so you can share it with your colleagues, friends, significant others, children, neighbours etc? It also makes ideal beach reading if you are currently on your holidays.

You may also have noticed there’s another SSAS Tabular book out, by Teo Lachev. Teo is an author I have the utmost respect for and I’m a big fan of everything he’s written; this book lives up to the high standards of his previous work. While it’s true there’s some overlap between his book and ours, the focus of his book is broader, covering topics such as Sharepoint, whereas ours has a narrower focus and goes into much greater detail on subjects such as DAX; so (again, as Marco says) you should probably consider buying both.
