Alberto Ferrari of SQLBI will talk about budgeting, one of the most challenging scenarios in the Power BI arena.

This session has just a few slides and a long demo. Alberto will start with simple forecasts and end up building a solution to allocate forecasts based on previous year sales. In the meantime, you'll learn about different relationships in Power BI. And of course… there will be a lot of DAX fun!

You'll learn how to:

* Understand and master relationships at different granularity
* Build advanced calculated tables
* Use DAX to link tables the right way
* Detect when numbers might be wrong and need to be cleared

Alberto Ferrari of SQLBI has published several books about Analysis Services, Power BI, and Power Pivot. He is a Microsoft MVP and he earned the SSAS Maestro title, the highest level of certification on Microsoft Analysis Services technology.
