The next release of SQL Server Analysis Services Tabular will allow you to use the M language and a Power Query-like UI to load data into your model. In this session you'll learn why this is such a significant change. Topics covered will include:
  • How the new functionality changes the way SSAS data loading works
  • New data sources that this supports
  • When you should transform data in M while loading and when you shouldn't
  • Creating partitions
  • Migrating from Power BI to Analysis Services
