Featured Presentation

SSAS Tabular and Self Service BI – The DynamDAX Duo

Speaker: Anthony Sammartino

Summary: In this session I will cover how SSAS tabular and Self Service BI complement each other and make the slicing and dicing of large amounts of data a breeze. I will walk through how to create an SSAS tabular model from scratch, get into how to create data relationships from a database model with a simple star schema, then hook it up to Excel and expose the elements for users to slice and dice data with ease. Then will demonstrate a few DAX commands that are very powerful, yet very easy. Will then show how SSAS Tabular really shines with Power View.
