Microstrategy Architect: Project Design Essentials

This two-day course provides students with an overview of the project design process, from designing the
logical data model and physical schema for the data warehouse to creating a project in MicroStrategy
Students first learn about the role of MicroStrategy Architect in supporting various project functions. Next,
students discover ways to design a logical data model and physical schema in preparation for creating a
MicroStrategy project. Finally, students learn about the project creation process, including how to work with
