Basic aggregations are useful; but decision makers are going to want more and want it quickly. What they’re probably going to need next is time intelligence measures. Quarter to Date, Year Over Year, Rolling 52 Week Averages. If you can’t do these you can’t do much. In this demo heavy presentation Brian Grant, the DAX Demystifier, will walk you through setting up your own Time Intelligence measures and see how they work mechanically. This will be a great presentation for people wanting to dig into the DAX language and get a sense of how you can use it to solve common business problems. Programming experience is absolutely NOT required, though being familiar with intermediate Excel formulas (or SQL) will be very helpful.
