55073AC Master Data Services, Data Quality Services with SQL 2012 -2014 and Excel

Course Description

Studies show that data deteriorates by about 2% per month. All organizations need to work from reliable information while ensuring that information integrity and data consistency are consistent across applications. Microsoft SQL Server 2012-2014 Master Data Services is a powerful feature designed to help an organization create a structure and hierarchy for data, so that data collected and used across multiple departments, silos, and databases is standardized and aligned. . This ensures that different databases are interoperable. When combined with Data Quality Services and Excel, a complete end-to-end system is available.

    The goal of this module is to gain an understanding of the business rules interface and how to implement business rules into your model. It is important that you know the interface requires some getting used to and is perhaps not the friendliest interface that you have ever used. Pay particular attention to how often you need to save your business rules.

    Module 8: MDS SECURITY

    The goal this module is to gain an understanding of the security in MDS. The security in some ways follows other security paradigms that you may be used to. Such as the concept of read, write, and deny permissions. However, the concepts such as granting permission to the model object for all groups of users so they can view the model may be foreign to you. Also make sure that you understand that MDS does not control security; that it is controlled by active directory. It is within active directory that the passwords and usernames are stored along with the user groups.
