  11. 11. Why Power Query ? Enable self-service data discovery, query, transformation and mashup experiences Discovery and connectivity to a wide range of data sources, spanning volume as well as variety of data. Highly interactive and intuitive experience for rapidly and iteratively building queries over any data source, any size. Consistencyof experience, and parity of query capabilities over all data sources. Joinsacross different data sources; ability to create custom views over data that can then be shared with team/department.
  12. 12. Data Shaping and Manipulation •Configure Data Types •Rename and remove columns •Insert Custom Columns •Split Columns (i.e. convert delimited text to columns) •Sort, Group, merge columns •Un-pivot Columns •Filter Data •Replace Value •Keep top ‘N’ rows or specific range of rows •Remove Duplicates Search data, many sources, many transformations, Extensible by code (M language) Share to Power BI by data catalog

  14. 14. Key Featured Highlights in Power Query 14 Repeatable Steps Shared Queries oSee the state of the data before and after each step was applied oRepeatable steps are repeatable for the same set of data oSharing of Queries with other users in the organization oSearch for "Organization" data to discover a shared Power Query

  20. 20. What is DAX ? 20 DAX (Data Analysis Expression) is a new calculation for Power Pivot It is a multi dimensional calculation language intended to: Make it easy to perform common calculations Make it easy for excel power users, hence Excel based syntax DAX expressions are designed to be limited as single line of code Need to understand the data logic built in power pivot data models Likely to be extended in the future versions of SSAS
  21. 21. Types of Calculations in Power Pivot 21 Calculated Columns CalculatedFields (Measures) New Calculationin table which performs calculations on a “row by row” basis (row context) Example: = ‘Employee’[Fname] & “ “ & ‘Employee’[Lname] New measure in a table which calculatesan aggregated numeric value (not on "rowby row” basis –filter context) Example: =TOTALMTD ([SalesUnits], ‘Date’[Datekey]) Created in Power Pivot Modelson the columns Created in Power PivotModel in the “Calculation area” or in the Power Pivot ribbon menu in excel window Two type of Calculated Fields a)Explicit : Defined by the data modeler using DAX b) Implicit: Uses the “Summarize by” behavior specified in the data model An Explicit Field canbe further used to define a KPI in the data model
