What is DAX?
Data analysis expressions (DAX) is the formula language of PowerPivot and Power BI. Simply reading a book is normally not enough to help Excel users learn DAX skills – you need to complete exercises and get plenty of practice to make the transition. This book is written to give you exactly that – hands-on practice. Inside you will find explanation of concepts, sample exercises and then practice questions and answers to maximize learning retention and experience.
From Excel to Power BI
Power BI is the big new thing in business intelligence from Microsoft. PowerBI.com became generally available in July 2015 and is following a rapid monthly development cycle – the pace of change is quite astonishing. There is no doubt that Excel users will increasingly want to leverage the sharing and modern visualisation capabilities of PowerBI.com, and learning to write DAX is the foundation of that journey. Anyone that learns DAX from this book will be well placed to quickly move from Excel to PowerBI.com.
