Automating OLAP cube documentation – SQLBits presentation

For anyone that missed my presentation at SQLBits 8 in April, the video is now available here.

In this 1 hour session I present a method of automating the creation of documentation for SSAS OLAP cubes by using DMVs (dynamic management views) and spatial data, querying the metadata of the cube in realtime.

The results include the BUS matrix, star schemas, attribute lists, hierarchies etc. and are all presented in SSRS.

The blog posts to go with this are here:
