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.

Organizations that start with Power BI often ask me "Jesse, how do you go about development, test and production environments when using Power BI?". I have decided to write about my experiences - I have been implementing Power BI since the beginning of the product - and share you my ideas. The reason why this

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

Azure Analysis Services on top of Azure Data Lake?

Recently I have seen implementations of Analysis Services that go directly to the Data Lake. In order to speed things up and to remove redundancy, there is no relational data storage even if the data is relational in nature. Data is persisted raw in the lake and goes directly to a user friendly data model

Tonight I presented a 1-hour session about applying Continuous Integration at the Microsoft Advanced Analytics User Group Belgium. 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!

When setting up Continuous Integration in VSTS, chances are you’ll run into the problem of building SSIS projects: where database projects are building just fine, SSIS just doesn’t build out-of-the-box (at least not at the time of writing). Here’s how you fix it:

If you want to set up Continuous Integration using Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) in order to build your BI projects, you'll run into the fact that some project types can be built and released out-of-the-box by MSBuild, while others need specific logic to create or deploy artifacts.
