This will include setting various attributes of the tables and the columns to improve functionality. We will also create relationships and hierarchies within the model. In addition, this session will cover the creation of calculated columns and basic measures within the model.</p> <p>During this session, we will discuss ways to get the most out of your model by completely defining the structure and content of the model.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/session-2-refining-model" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/session-2-refining-model#comments SQL Server Mon, 01 Jun 2015 17:12:00 +0000 24831 at http://sqlmag.com Session 3: DAX Expressions http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/session-3-dax-expressions <div class="node-body video-body"><p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 63 minutes | </p> <p>This session will cover the creation of advanced measures and analytics within the model using DAX expressions. We will use the CALCULATE() function along with various filtering, date, and table functions to create time analytics, percent of total, and other common functionality. We will also look at KPIs and working with hierarchies.</p> <p>During this session, we will discuss how filtering works within a Tabular model to create an in-depth understanding of basic DAX functionality and provide a firm foundation for developing complex measures using DAX expressions.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/session-3-dax-expressions" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/session-3-dax-expressions#comments SQL Server Mon, 01 Jun 2015 17:12:00 +0000 24841 at http://sqlmag.com Session 1: Loading Data into the Model http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/session-1-loading-data-model <div class="node-body video-body"><p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 68 minutes | </p> <p>This session will cover the process of loading data into the model. We will look at working with various types of data sources. We will pull whole tables, as well as use queries to pre-aggregate data as part of the load process. Once the data is in the model, we will begin to clean the model to make it as user friendly as possible.</p> <p>During this session, we will discuss best practices for creating a model that is easy-to-use and that loads and delivers data efficiently.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/session-1-loading-data-model" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/session-1-loading-data-model#comments SQL Server Mon, 01 Jun 2015 17:12:00 +0000 24821 at http://sqlmag.com SQL Select: 8 Great New Features in SQL Server 2016 http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/sql-select-8-great-new-features-sql-server-2016 <div class="node-body gallery-body">Learn about the top eight new features coming in SQL Server 2016</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/sql-select-8-great-new-features-sql-server-2016" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/sql-select-8-great-new-features-sql-server-2016#comments SQL Server always encrypted AlwaysOn In-Memory OLTP json PDW PolyBase Real-time analytics ssdt Wed, 06 May 2015 22:15:00 +0000 24161 at http://sqlmag.com SQL Select: Basic SQL Server Setup Checklist http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/sql-select-basic-sql-server-setup-checklist <div class="node-body gallery-body">Here are some basic settings that are best practices for almost all new SQL Server instances</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/sql-select-basic-sql-server-setup-checklist" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/sql-select-basic-sql-server-setup-checklist#comments SQL Server Ad Hoc Workloads AUTO_CLOSE AUTO_SHRINK Max Server Memory Min Server Memory Mon, 02 Mar 2015 21:56:00 +0000 23051 at http://sqlmag.com SQL Server Connection Strings http://sqlmag.com/database-development/sql-server-connection-strings <div class="node-body gallery-body">Learn about the different SQL Server connection strings.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/database-development/sql-server-connection-strings" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/database-development/sql-server-connection-strings#comments Azure Database Development ADO.NET Connection Strings OBBC OLE DB SQL Azure SQL Express Fri, 17 Oct 2014 10:01:00 +0000 21201 at http://sqlmag.com SQL Server at IT/Dev Connections: A Week in Vegas http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/sql-server-itdev-connections-week-vegas <div class="node-body gallery-body">Last week, the long-awaited IT/Dev Connections Conference finally kicked off in the beautiful Aria hotel in Las Vegas.
