Peter Myers: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Relationships

We have Peter Myers in town, and it is a fantastic opportunity to learn from him for free. This is a presentation about Power BI modeling with a specific focus on relationships. In short, relationships are essential to delivering intuitive, accurate and optimal models. Interestingly, relationship design can be considered part science and part art. You will learn what relationships do and how they can be configured for Import, DirectQuery and Composite models. The introduction to relationships is reasonably straight forward. Theory and demos will progress beyond the basics to explain how to achieve sophisticated model designs that include role-playing dimensions, many-to-many relationships (two techniques), ambiguous relationships, and disconnected tables. All DAX functions that leverage or modify model relationships will also be covered. About Speaker: Peter Myers is a consultant, trainer and presenter from Melbourne. He has worked with Microsoft database and development products since 1997. Today he specializes in all Microsoft Business Intelligence products and also authors training course content for Microsoft products and services. He has a broad business background supported by a bachelor’s degree in applied economics and accounting, and he extends this with extensive experience backed by current MCSE certifications. He has been a Data Platform MVP since 2007.
