Super Charge Power BI with Azure Analysis Services
Monday, June 12. 11:10 am – 12:00 pm.
Join this session to get a deep dive to how you can scale up a Power BI model by migrating it to Azure Analysis Services. This new service enables larger models and allows fine grained control of refresh behavior. We will cover migration, using the gateway for on-premises data, and new connectivity with Power Query and the M Engine for Power BI compatibility and reuse.
Creating Enterprise Grade BI Models with Azure Analysis Services
Tuesday, June 13. 11:40 am – 12:30 pm.
Microsoft Azure Analysis Services and SQL Server Analysis Services enable you to build comprehensive, enterprise-scale analytic solutions that deliver actionable insights through familiar data visualization tools such as Microsoft Power BI and Microsoft Excel. Analysis Services enables consistent data across reports and users of Power BI. The demos will cover new features such as improved Power BI Desktop feature integration, Power Query connectivity, and techniques for modeling and data loading which enable the best reporting experiences. Various modeling enhancements will be included such as Detail Rows allowing users to easily see transactional records, and improved support for ragged hierarchies.
