Dimensional modeling in 2018

It is quite common to update your skills in a product, Power BI for example. It is not so common to re-validate concepts or theory very often. For example "Joins are performance heavy", or "Data warehouses need surrogate keys". Usually these things don't change very often. Still it is important to update your view on

Recently I have seen implementations of Analysis Services that go directly to the Data Lake. In order to speed things up and to remove redundancy, there is no relational data storage even if the data is relational in nature. Data is persisted raw in the lake and goes directly to a user friendly data model

In an enterprise environment there are various ways of how users can interact with data using Power BI.

Tonight I presented a 1-hour session about applying Continuous Integration at the Microsoft Advanced Analytics User Group Belgium.
