NEW DAX PATTERNS:
Parameter Table


The Parameter Table pattern is useful when you want to add a slicer to a PivotTable and make it modify the result of some calculation, injecting parameters into DAX expressions.


Static Segmentation

The Static Segmentation pattern groups a continuous numeric value in a finite number of clusters by using a configuration defined in a parameter table.
The static segmentation happens in a calculated column that is useful when you want to filter and group data according to the range of values.
The parameter table is invisible and used only to control the segmentation algorithm.
FILTER vs CALCULATETABLE:
optimization using cardinality estimation


A common best practice is to use CALCULATETABLE instead of FILTER for performance reason.
This article by Marco Russo explore the reasons of that and explain when FILTER might be better than CALCULATETABLE.
