Unboxing new Power BI composite models
Discover the features in the new composite models introduced in the December 2020 version of Power BI Desktop. You can connect to a Dataset published on powerbi.com (or to Azure Analysis Services) and add tables, columns, and relationships to an existing data model. You can also mash up local models and one or more remote models.
It is the beginning of a new era.
Technically, this feature is called “Direct Query for Analysis Services”, but the name is a technical detail… The impact is huge for every Power BI user!
