VertiPaq Analyzer 1.7: a fundamental tool for #powerbi #powerpivot #ssas #tabular diagnostics and documentation
If you work with Power Pivot, Power BI, or Analysis Services Tabular, you probably already know VertiPaq Analyzer. If you never used it, with the new release 1.7 you have another couple of very good reason to try it.
VertiPaq Analyzer is a Power Pivot workbook that extracts information from data management views (DMVs) of a Tabular model. It can be connected to a SSAS Tabular or a Power BI database. If you have a Power Pivot data model, just import it in Power BI and extracts the information from there. You will quickly see what are the tables and columns that are more expensive, and you will have all the details about cardinality of columns and tables at a glance. This is of paramount importance when you have to optimize a DAX expression. However, these are the features we already had in VertiPaq Analyzer. What’s new in this release?
