SESSION OUTLINE:

Subscription or contracted services businesses have some unique analytic demands around dates. They still have standard forms of analysis that may involve filtering and grouping facts on multiple role-playing date dimensions. But they also need analytics where the same facts are shown multiple times, in different time periods; such as showing subscription starts as a positive in one month, and subscription expirations as a negative in another month in order to see the net change in contract values. Let's explore some models that handle this concept, and try to extend it to other non-subscription business problems too.
