Analytics Platform System Whitepapers

By Brian Mitchell, Business Program Manager

The Data Insights Global Practice published several important whitepapers on the Analytics Platform System. For anyone working on APS, I highly recommend downloading these papers and digesting their information.

Andy Isley, Data Insights Solutions Architect, published Data Loading with APS that is now available publically online.  This whitepaper explains many of the concepts important to loading data efficiently into APS using both DWLoader and SSIS.

Michael Hlobil, Data Insights Solutions Architect, and Ryan Mich, ACTO Data Insights COE Consultant, authored an outstanding guide Optimizing Distributed Database Design for APS whitepaper that is now available publically online.  This whitepaper goes beyond the basic description of designing for distributed and replicated tables but delves into many edge use cases that you may run into on APS.

Brian Walker published an Analytics Platform System whitepaper on Enterprise Data Warehouse – Managing Roles and Rights. The intended audience for this paper includes IT pros who are responsible architecting, implementing, and managing a security framework to support corporate and regulatory compliance.
