  • Create API for Power BI Designer #powerbi

  • DAX Studio 2.1 helps you optimizing #dax queries for #powerpivot #powerbi #ssas #tabular

    After the initial release of DAX Studio 2.0, in December 2014, I started working on a few features to analyze performance of DAX queries.

  • Relational Data Lake

    What is a Data Lake? Pentaho CTO James Dixon is credited with coining the term ''Data Lake''. As he describes it in his blog entry, ''If you think of a Data Mart as a store of bottled water – cleansed and packaged and structured for easy consumption – the Data Lake is a large body of water in a more natural state.
