Power BI Data view is a feature within the Power BI Desktop application that allows users to explore and analyze their data in a visual, intuitive way. In the data view, users can create and modify relationships between tables, clean and transform data, and create calculated columns and measures. The data view also allows users to preview their data and ensure that it is properly formatted and ready for visualization. Additionally, users can use the data view to create hierarchies, set data categories, and define the granularity of their data. Overall, the Power BI Data view is an essential tool for preparing and shaping data before creating visualizations and reports.

Organizations that operate worldwide typically need to manage data both locally and globally. Local business units and subsidiaries must address region-specific data and accounting standards, regulations, customer requirements, and market drivers. At the same time, corporate headquarters must share data broadly and maintain a complete view of performance for the entire enterprise. For many global firms, data is the business. They need state-of-the-art data management just to remain innovative and competitive. Hence, multinational businesses face a long list of new business and technical requirements for modern data management.

Metadata Governance is the execution and enforcement of authority over the management of Metadata and other data documentation. Organizations that govern their data documentation find it easier to govern their data as a result. There is direct correlation between the use of Data Catalogs, Business Glossaries and Data Dictionaries and successful governance of data and Metadata. This month’s RWDG webinar with Bob Seiner will focus on governing the use of the mentioned tools and the Metadata that can be managed inside each one. Bob will talk about governing Metadata in existing Metadata resources versus using new tools to handle this function.

Building a Modern Operational Data Warehouse

With data coming from so many different sources nowadays (both old and new, both internal and external), it is inevitable that data will arrive in many different structures, schema, and formats, with other variables for latency, concurrency, and requirements for storage and processing. When data types are extremely diverse and combined, we now call it “hybrid data.” This usually drives users to deploy many types of databases and different platforms to capture, store, process, and analyze the data, which in turn results in hybrid data management architectures.
