  • BI on your terms with SQL Server 2016

    The last few years Microsoft strategy was all about cloud first (or cloud only?), releasing new BI products and updates to existing products to the cloud in high pace without almost any investments in on-premises BI. In 2015 Microsoft seems to change its course, they now aim more on the enabling of hybrid scenarios, investing a lot in both ...

  • New features in DAX Editor #dax #tabular #ssas

    In the last few weeks I and Teo Lachev took the ownership of DAX Editor code. It is an add-in for Visual Studio that allows you to edit DAX measures in a text editor instead of using the Measure grid. It also provides other features (such as editing measures of an online Tabular database and performing a few queries). The user interface is not ...

In this blogpost I will look into the security and authentication possibilities that the SSAS Connector offers.

  • 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. Darren Gosbell implemented many other features, and Daniele Perilli helped us with the graphics of the UI. We certainly can do more, but I think that the current feature set of the new release is good enough to ...

  • The Power BI dashboard in public preview - available also without Office #powerbi

    Microsoft released a new version of Power BI in preview mode, including many new visualizations that are immediately available to all existing subscribers also in production, such as the long waited treemap, combo charts (combining line chart and column chart), and more. These features are available only in HTML5 visualizations, so you can only ...

  • Rename table, columns, and measures in #ssas #tabular without breaking existing #dax

    A feature that many people require in SSAS Tabular is the ability to refactor existing names, doing a correspondent rename in all existing objects in the model. I agree that this is an important feature that should be added in the development environment, but this will help only the development cycle. Once you release a Tabular model, the names ...

  • What are useful tools and resources for DAX developers? #dax #powerpivot #tabular

    At the last PASS Summit I received an interesting question: is there a list of all the useful (I would say necessary…) tools for DAX developers? My answer was… “no, but this is an interesting topic for a blog post”. In the meantime, I thought that a page to keep updated would have been better, and of course an easy-to-remember URL is equally ...

  • Don’t use SUMMARIZE to sum your data–or just be careful #dax #ssas #powerpivot

    During the last PASS Summit I and Alberto Ferrari had long discussions at SQL Clinic with some of the developers of our loved tools. Sometime you really have to dig in the internals of certain feature to understand why there are some “unexpected” behaviors for certain functions. One of the discussions was about SUMMARIZE. This function can be very ...
