Microsoft Data Platform Group Birmingham - Thursday 4th March 2021 @ 1:00pm
Session: Power BI Composite Models; enhancing and combining multiple datasets together with Alex Whittles
Power BI now offers ‘Direct Query over Datasets and SSAS’, but what does this mean? Often also referred to as Composite Models (an ambiguous term!), this means that you can use Power BI to add a layer of enhancement to existing Power BI datasets, or even Analysis Services cubes.
This could be expanding with additional facts, dimensions or reference data, or even combining multiple datasets/cubes together into one.
Join this demo-led session to learn more about how to create them, and how they can transform your Power BI and SSAS reporting architecture.
Alex is a 7 year Data Platform MVP, and is the owner and principle consultant at Purple Frog, a Microsoft Data Analytics consultancy in the UK with multinational clients in a variety of sectors. He specialises in the architecture and design of all aspects of data warehousing, ETL, cubes, Power BI and Machine Learning. He’s also the creator of Power BI Sentinel. He’s on the organizing committee for SQL Bits, is a regular speaker at many data events around the world including SQL Bits, Data Relay, SQL Saturdays, Data Grillen, 24 HOP and the PASS Summit, and has a Masters degree in Business Intelligence.
