DAX is the native language behind Microsoft PowerBI and other Microsoft data tools. It s designed as a flexible, powerful syntax for working with various data types and crafting functions to manipulate and analyze data.
Even for beginners, PowerBI out of the box offers incredible analysis capability. However, for those who are comfortable with basic features and are ready to truly unlock PowerBI s potential, DAX is the key. Learning to use DAX within PowerBI gives you the power to perform incredibly fine-grained analysis and data manipulation.
