Power BI + Synapse: Leverage the best of both for scale


When you think of scale of data, you think about Azure Synapse Analytics. What about Power BI? Or course it scales! But to get that scale, you need to leverage the best features from both pieces instead of just looking at them in individual silos. In this training day, we will go through just that!

- SQL Dedicated Pool vs Serverless
- Data ingestion strategies
- Caching strategy with Aggregations
- Hybrid Tables
- Best practices
- Security and governance
- More…

Learning Objectives

Attendees will leave with an understanding of the key features to leverage between Power BI and Synapse to achieve the best performance and scale. They will understand best practices to achieve those goals.
