SQL Server 2005 : Reduces Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Too!!

Friday, May 21, 2004

I came across an MS slide deck recently touting business intelligence improvements in Yukon via Duncan Lamb. Check out slide 22 – it measures the tedious mouse-clicking festival I experienced today designing a cube to analyze hospital profitability (or lack thereof).

To build the Sales and Warehouse cubes in the sample Foodmart database using SQL 2000 requires 115 wizards and 1,321 mouse clicks.

Building the same cubes in Yukon requires 7 mouse clicks.

Honestly, I dread the cube editor in Analysis Services 2000. All hail Yukon!!
