DAX Studio For Power BI and SSAS - Beginner to Advanced

Master the ultimate tool for executing and analyzing DAX queries against various sources including Power BI and SSAS

An outline of this training course

Power BI is an amazing tool. If you love Power BI then we are sure that you will love DAX Studio as well!

What is DAX Studio? It is an external tool that you can use with Power BI, Power Pivot and SSAS. This tool which looks relatively simple in UI is extremely powerful and allows you to go beyond writing just DAX Code for measures, calculated columns, or calculated tables.

We want you to move ahead in your Power BI journey therefore we bring you this brand new course on DAX Studio with which we show how you can query your data model! But why should you query a Tabular model? Tabular is super-fast when compared to relational data model, so that means we can use the existing data in Tabular models to generate new data, that we can either load again in Power BI or maybe we can build a summary report from your data model. For this, you need to know several keywords that are only exposed to external tool like DAX Studio, and then you can pair it with the export data functionality of DAX Studio to prepare a wide range of desired reports.

The course starts with installation, then we spend a good amount of time in learning how to write DAX queries, then we address some additional topics such as Row Level and Object Level security, identify port number to connect excel to PBI and many other things that are useful in day-to-day operations. After that we spend time in Query Builder option that allows you to build queries on the fly and then we move into explanation of DMVs and how important they are when you are developing your data model.

We are proud to say that after completing this course you will be a DAX Studio Maestro! And the journey doesn't stop here! Right after completing this course we recommend that you move on to the more advanced course on DAX Optimization using DAX Studio.

DAX Studio for Power BI & SSAS - Beginner to Advanced - can be accessed through a purchase of an Enterprise DNA Membership.
