Event Details


Welcome to our October 2017 meeting!

We moved this month's meeting back a couple of weeks to take advantage of Marco Russo being in town.  It should be a great session on a topic very familiar topic.

Session: Time in Intelligence in Power BI



Time Intelligence is probably the most interesting feature of any analytical solution. Computing Year-To-Date, Month-To-Date, Same-Period-Last-Year, is quite easy in DAX but, as soon as the customer requests for time intelligence require working days’ evaluation, complex and custom calendar shapes, seasonal pattern recognition, the DAX formulas start to be harder to write.

In this session, we are going to show how to compute classical time intelligence with the built-in DAX functions. Then, we will show some more complex time intelligence formulas, which require thinking out of the box, using advanced data modeling and querying techniques to produce interesting and useful formulas.
