You are designing a data warehouse for a fresh food distribution business that stores sates by individual product. It stores sales targets by product category. Products are classified into subcategories and categories. Each product is included in only a single product subcategory, and each subcategory is included in only a single category. The data warehouse will be a data source for an Analysis Services cube. The data warehouse contains two fact tables:

Ÿ   factSales, used to record daily sales by product

Ÿ   factProductTarget, used to record the monthly sales targets by product category

Reports must be developed against the warehouse that reports product sales by product, category and subcategory, and product sales targets. You need to design the product dimension. The solution should use as few tables as possible while supporting all the requirements. What should you do?

Create two product tables, dimProduct and dimProductCategory. Connect factSales to dimProduct and factProductTarget to dimProductCategory with foreign key constraints. Direct the cube developer to use key granularity attributes.
Create one product table, dimProduct, which contains product detail, category, and subcategory columns. Connect factSales to dimProduct with a foreign key constraint. Direct the cube developer to use a non-key granularity attribute for factProductTarget.
Create three product tables, dimProduct, dimProductCategory, and dimProductSubcategory, and a fourth bridge table that joins products to their appropriate category and subcategory table records with foreign key constraints. Direct the cube developer to use key granularity attributes.
Create three product tables, dimProduct, dimProductCategory, and dimProductSubcategory. Connect factSales to all three product tables and connect factProductTarget to dimProductCategory with foreign key constraints. Direct the cube developer to use key granularity attributes.
You are reviewing the design of an existing fact table named factSales, which is loaded incrementally from a SQL Azure database by a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package each hour. The fact table has approximately 4 billion rows and is dimensioned by product, sales date, and sales time of day.

The database administrator is concerned about the rapid growth of the database and users experience poor reporting performance against this database. Reporting requirements have recently changed and the only remaining report that uses this fact table reports sales by product name, sale month, and sale year. No other reports will be created against this table. You need to reduce the report processing time and minimize the growth of the database. What should you do?
Create an indexed view over the fact table to sum orderTotal by month.
Create a view over the fact table to sum orderTotal by month.
Change the granularity of the fact table to month.
Partition the fact table by productKey.

A SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) project has been deployed to the SSIS catalog. The project includes a project Connection Manager to connect to the data warehouse. The SSIS catalog includes two Environments:

You are designing a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package. The package moves order-related data to a staging table named Order. Every night the staging data is truncated and then all the recent orders from the online store database are inserted into the staging table. Your package must meet the following requirements:

Ÿ   If the truncate operation fails, the package execution must stop and report an error.

Ÿ   If the Data Flow task that moves the data to the staging table fails, the entire refresh operation must be rolled back.

Ÿ   For auditing purposes, a log entry must be entered in a SQL log table after each execution of the Data Flow task.

The TransactionOption property for the package is set to Required. You need to design the package to meet the requirements. How should you design the control flow for the package?  Which options filling the designated spaces?

You are building a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package to load product data sourced from a SQL Azure database to a data warehouse. Before the product data is loaded, you create a batch record by using an Execute SQL task named Create Batch. After successfully loading the product data, you use another Execute SQL task named Set Batch Success to mark the batch as successful.
 
Create Batch
\/
Load Products
\/
Set Batch Success
 
You need to create and execute an Execute SQL task to mark the batch as failed if either the Create Batch or Load Products task fails. Which three steps should you perform in sequence?

You are creating a sales data warehouse. When a product exists in the product dimension, you update the product name. When a product does not exist, you insert a new record. In the current implementation, the DimProduct table must be scanned twice, once for the insert and again for the update. As a result, inserts and updates to the DimProduct table take longer than expected. You need to create a solution that uses a single command to perform an update and an insert. How should you use a MERGE T-SQL statement to accomplish this goal?
 
MERGE dbo.DimProduct AS   [Insert Statement Here]
 
USING (SELECT ProductID, ProductName, ProductColor, ProductCategory
     FROM dbo.StagingProduct) AS   [Insert Statement Here]
ON (Target.ProductID = Source.ProductID)
 
WHEN   [Insert Statement Here]
 
   UPDATE SET Target.ProductName - Source.ProductName
 
WHEN   [Insert Statement Here]
 
   INSERT (ProductID, ProductName, ProductColor, Source.ProductCategory)
   VALUES (Source.ProductID, Source.ProductName, Source.ProductColor, Source.ProductCategory)
OUTPUT $action, Inserted.*, Deleted.*;
