  15. 15. Overview A materialized view pre-computes, stores, and maintains its data in Azure SQL Data Warehouse like a table. Materialized views are automatically updated when data in underlying tables are changed. This is a synchronous operation that occurs as soon as the data is changed. The auto caching functionality allows SQL DW Query Optimizer to consider using indexed view even if the view is not referenced in the query. Supported aggregations: MAX, MIN, AVG, COUNT, COUNT_BIG, SUM, VAR, STDEV Benefits Automatic and synchronous data refresh with data changes in base tables. No user action is required. High availability and resiliency as regular tables Materialized views -- Create indexed view CREATE INDEXED VIEW Sales.vw_Orders WITH ( DISTRIBUTION = ROUND_ROBIN | HASH(ProductID) ) AS SELECT SUM(UnitPrice*OrderQty) AS Revenue, OrderDate, ProductID, COUNT_BIG(*) AS OrderCount FROM Sales.SalesOrderDetail GROUP BY OrderDate, ProductID; GO -- Disable index view and put it in suspended mode ALTER INDEX ALL ON Sales.vw_Orders DISABLE; -- Re-enable index view by rebuilding it ALTER INDEX ALL ON Sales.vw_Orders REBUILD; Azure Synapse Analytics > SQL >

  35. 35. What Kinds of Visualizations? Choose from numerous modern visualization types: ◦ Filter data: ◦ Slicer ◦ Display numeric values: ◦ Card, Multi Row Card, Table, Matrix, KPI ◦ Graphically visualize data: ◦ Bar, Column, Line, Combo, Scatter, Waterfall, Pie, Donut, Funnel, Treemap, Gauge, R Script ◦ Spatially visualize data: ◦ Map, Filled map, Shape map (preview)
  36. 36. Custom Visuals Custom visuals can be imported to extend beyond the out-of-the-box visualizations ◦ A gallery of visuals created by the Power BI community is available at ◦ Browse through the visuals or submit one of your own for others to use ◦ The list of available visuals is growing each month ◦ Custom visuals will render in the Power BI service
  37. 37. Designing reports Custom visuals: Gallery (subset) * And the list is growing!
  38. 38. What Data Sources Can Power BI Connect TO? Over 100 different data sources What is available in the service may be be different than the desktop If hybrid connection, (on-prem/non- Azure cloud) the Power BI Gateway will be required
  39. 39. Get [A LOT OF] Data **Custom connectors can also be created.
  40. 40. Power BI Desktop
  41. 41. Modeling Data
  42. 42. Modeling Data Work in Data View to inspect, explore, and understand data in the model  It is a different experience from how you can view tables, columns, and data in Query Editor  This is a view of the data after it has been loaded into the model
  43. 43. Managing Relationships
  44. 44. Creating Calculated Columns Created from Data View in Power BI Aggregate data Combine columns to create unique identifiers
  45. 45. Measures Uses DAX, (Data Analysis Expressions) Over 200 functions, operators and constructs Incredibly flexible Similar to Excel formulas, (MDX) but designed to work with relational data
  46. 46. KPIs Key Performance Indicators, (KPIs) also called “strategic measures” ◦ Helps understand if company goals are being achieved ◦ Goal values must be part of the dataset in Power BI
  47. 47. KPI Demonstration Choose the data Choose the timeline for the KPI Sort by the indicator Change to a KPI visual Update any fields
  48. 48. Natural Language Queries
  49. 49. Performance Analyzer In Power BI Desktop Open Report Start Recording Optimize for Time
  50. 50. Turning on Previews This changes every release, so update what previews you’d like to try out!
  51. 51. Row Level Security Excludes data from visualizations and reports Is set up at report level Uses DAX Filters Filters assigned to roles Assigned to users and groups through roles Admins can test out roles before releasing to production
  52. 52. Web Scraping with Power BI
  53. 53. PBI Gateway
  54. 54. Power BI Gateway The Power BI Gateway—Personal is used to refresh supported on- premises data sources  Only available in 64-bit  Runs as a service if configured with an administrator account; otherwise runs as an application  Data transfer is secured (SSL) through Azure Service Bus  Often no requirement to open firewall ports, (unless VM installation)  Certain scenarios cannot be scheduled for data refresh:  Custom SQL statements  Excel worksheet data  Direct Connect or DirectQuery data sources
  55. 55. Power BI Gateway- Enterprise Installation of the On-Premises Data Gateway serves large groups of users to refresh supported on-premises data sources  It is the successor to the Power BI Gateway—Enterprise  IT can:  Centrally manage the set of users who have access to the underlying data sources  Gain visibility into gateway usage, such as most commonly accessed data sources, and the users accessing them  Data sources:  SQL Server Analysis Services (Multidimensional and Tabular modes)  SQL Server  Oracle, Teradata, SAP HANA…
