BISM tabular model RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is the BISM tabular model worthwhile to learn for power pivot people? What is it exactly? I've read a lot of the Italians book and they wrote one on this subject. Grazie.

  • Absolutely BISM tabular model and Power Pivot share the same querying engine, the same language (DAX). There is an easy migration route between Power Pivot and Analysis Services tabular model. In short tabular model is the scale out version of Power Pivot.
