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.

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
