Dimensional modeling in 2018

It is quite common to update your skills in a product, Power BI for example. It is not so common to re-validate concepts or theory very often. For example "Joins are performance heavy", or "Data warehouses need surrogate keys". Usually these things don't change very often. Still it is important to update your view on

The Enterprise Tabular model

In Microsoft BI, a tabular model is often the way to go. OLAP gets more and more often replaced by Tabular cubes and Power BI models. However, it's really hard to create a model that covers the whole enterprise. In this post I propose a solution for doing just that in a simple way. In

The session was an "espresso version" from the 2-day course, skipping things like Git, setting up VSTS build environments etc. Great fun to be here, thanks for the invite!
