Azure Weekly - Power BI Weekly #264 - 25th June 2024

Power BI Weekly Newsletter Issue #264

powered by endjin

Welcome to the 264th edition of Power BI Weekly! No technical announcements this week, but Microsoft has yet again (unsurprisingly) been named a Leader in the 2024 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Analytics and BI Platforms, being placed in the most impressive position (and by some distance)! Well done to the various teams at Microsoft.

Onto the community blogs this week: Meagan Longoria has written a great blog about What to Know about Power BI Theme Colors, Marco Russo has shown Filter context in DAX explained visually (for you spatial learners out there), and Marc Lelijveld has written a much needed blog about Power BI and Fabric capacities: Understand the difference and cost structure.

If you have any content you'd like to contribute to the newsletter, please tweet @PowerBIWeekly or ping an email to PowerBIWeekly@endjin.com.
