Around the world of Power BI in 80 days. Power BI performance - part 12
Date: November 24, 2021
Time: 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM (Central European)
Topic: Data Science and Machine Learning
This event is the series finalé - Around the world of Power BI in 80 days -a journey through the data platform.
What is this session about?
Congratulations! You've built your shiny fancy Power BI report and your charts look terrific. But, your data refresh takes forever...Or, your report is utterly slow when interacting with visuals...You switch to DirectQuery mode to make things better, just to discover that the report performance sucks even more... And, if you feel lost, I don't blame you - I've also been there! That's why this session is for you: we will examine potential bottlenecks in your Power BI report - starting with defining the best practices for data model size optimization, understanding the importance of query folding feature, all the way to identifying culprits for your slow report rendering. We will wrap it up with learning when and why (not) to use DirectQuery mode, and how to apply improvements on the data source side to make things faster in the Power BI.
Who is it aimed at?
Power BI professionals with working experience in Power BI development.
Why should I attend?
You will understand the most common caveats regarding the performance of the Power BI report - both from the backend (data modeling, data refresh process), and frontend side (DAX calculations, visuals rendering). You will also discover the possible solutions to these challenges
