Creating a Rich Data Model Using Power BI Desktop

Thursday, May 11
8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
Room: Illinois Central

Format: Deep Dive

This sessions covers how to get started with the data modeling features available in Power BI Desktop. Attendees will learn how to design a data model by creating calculated columns and measures using DAX (Data Analysis Expression language). The session explains the differences between calculated columns and measures and discusses scenarios in which measures are preferred over calculated columns and vice versa. The module explains why and how to extend a data model with dimensional hierarchies and also introduces concepts and terms used when modeling a dataset using time dimensions. Attendees will learn why and how to create a dynamic calendar table using DAX to track time dimensions as well as how to write measures which take advantage of the Time Intelligence functions available in DAX. By the end of this session, attendees will learn how to write DAX expressions which provide rich analytic capabilities such as calculating year-to-date totals and rolling averages and to provide drill down capabilities to the level of month, week or day.
