The second episode of the podcast series that Josh Fletcher and I are putting together is now up on the DSLayer site. Head on over to check it out and see us talk about and demo getting the ins and outs of getting the free trial version of BW up and running, connecting BW with Data Services (the old way and the new way), and setting up a quick(ish) and dirty datamart in BW. There is even some crashing and burning at the end, as promised!
In future, hopefully shorter, episodes we are planning to get a BEx query set up with some calculated measures, pull in some additional employee data, and report on the whole thing using BI4 tools. Maybe we'll even take some initial steps away from a data-mart approach and towards a data warehouse approach.
