What is meant by MSBI?

Oct 16, 2019

MSBI stands for Microsoft Business Intelligence. This powerful suite is composed of tools which helps in providing best solutions for Business Intelligence and Data Mining Queries. This tool uses Visual studio along with SQL server. It empowers users to gain access to accurate and up-to-date information for better decision making in an organization. It offers different tools for different processes which are required in Business Intelligence (BI) solutions.



MSBI is divided into 3 categories:

  1. SSIS – SQL Server Integration Services – Integration tool. This tool is used for integration like duping the data from one database to another like from Oracle to SQL Server or from Excel to SQL Server etc.

    This tool is also used for bulk transactions in the database like inserting lacs of records at once. We can create the integration services modules which will do the job for us.

     
  2. SSAS – SQL Server Analytical Services -Analysis tool. This tool is used to analyze the performance of the SQL Server in terms of load balancing, heavy data, transaction etc. So it is more or less related to the administration of the SQL Server using this tool. This is a very powerful tool and through this, we can analyze the data inserting into the database like how many transactions happen in a second etc.
     
  3. SSRS – SQL Server Reporting Services – Reporting tool. This is a very efficient tool as it is platform-independent. We can generate the report using this tool and can use it in any type of application. Nowadays this is very popular in the market.
