Processing Tabular Models


Ever wondered what’s happening under the covers when processing a tabular model? Why is it such a resource intensive process? How can I make it run faster? Am I running into a resource bottleneck?

In this session, you’ll learn what actually happens (and in what order) during model processing, the difference between the various processing types, performance considerations and most common resource bottlenecks. We’ll also cover the most common SSAS processing patterns and the trade-offs of picking one over the other.
