Power BI Shared Datasets versus Cubes

Good day Power BI Community.

 

Question, what do you think about designing, creating and implementing a Shared Dataset as a Cube versus an SSAS Cube ?

 

I read the article entitled "Power BI Shared Datasets versus Cubes" from the URL link below:

https://www.onesixsolutions.com/blog/data-analytics/shared-datasets-vs-cubes/

 

I would love to know your thoughts on this.

 

Thank you.

Hi @rthomas_jbg 


The Power BI Shared dataset is actually also a cube. It is just hosted and mainted by the Power BI team.

 

If you can get it working within the shared dataset then that is what I would suggest doing.

Hi @GilbertQ 

Thank you very much for responsing to my post.

Bsaed on your response to my question, are saying that for example, I can connect to Microsoft Dynamics 365 using Power BI and then design, create and implement a model (Shared Dataset) that can be served as a cube to which the business users can connect ?
