Who say’s that you need to be a Data Warehousing guru in order to create new reporting cubes for Dynamics AX. Not me (any more).
The following walkthrough is completely plagiarized of the following Microsoft TechNet article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc622026.aspx and shows how easy it is to create your own reporting cubes against the AX 2012 database, without even setting foot in MSSQL Enterprise Manager, or BIDS.
This is very cool.
Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
