That area is fairly vast and as such you are unlikely to find one source that covers it all.
You would need to take a look at:

Data Warehousing
Sql Server Analysis Services
MDX
DMX
DAX
The recently added Tabular Model
Powerpivot
Integration Services
and Reporting Services
to name a few of it's moving parts.

If you are relationally minded, then you may find you have to "unlearn" a few ingrained ways of thinking to get your head around the data structures that underpin multi-dimensional databases.

The kimball methodology is common place in that arena so may be you can start by taking a look at his books on datawarehousing and work your up?

* The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Tookit
* The Data Warehouse Toolkit
* The Data Warehouse ETL Toolkit
