DAX Studio is one of the best tools around for data professionals who want to seamlessly execute their DAX queries across different data sources.
In these two new courses by one of our Enterprise DNA experts, Antriksh Sharma, you can learn how to maximize the use of DAX studio to further optimize your reports.
The Benefits of Using DAX Studio
When you work with Power BI or SSAS, how you work with your DAX queries matters. But working with DAX can also get complicated at times and can give you results that don’t exactly align with the outcome you’re hoping for.
This makes DAX Studio a powerful ally when it comes to DAX queries. This tool gives you a clear overview of what your data models are showing. And because DAX queries operate on a data model, you can imagine what a game-changer it is to see if you’re going towards the right direction or not in terms of your DAX.
An open-source tool, DAX Studio is easy to install and connect to your PBI file or server. It truly is the ultimate tool for executing and analyzing DAX queries especially for Power BI and SSAS users.
