1:35 - 2:15 Power BI / AAS Data Model Optimization 101 - Dan English, Microsoft
Creating tabular data models is easy with tools like Power BI Desktop. You can build, deploy, and start creating reports off them really quick, but are they optimized? Is the model designed efficiently and is the DAX code in the model set up in a way that it will continue to perform well as the data volumes and number of users increase over time.
In this session we will explore the basic steps you should take as you build out your tabular data models and discuss some best practices in designing the model to avoid potential pitfalls. We will look at the tools you can use to evaluate and test your models if you run into performance related issues so that you will know how to use them. After this session you will have an understanding of how to review and evaluate your tabular models and best practices for implementation.
