Overview
Existing environment Litware, Inc. is a retail company that sells outdoor recreational goods and accessories. The company sells goods both online and its stores located in six countries.

Azure Resources Litware has the following Azure resources:
An Azure Synapse Analytics workspace named synapseworkspace1
An Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 account named datalake1 that is associated with synapseworkspace1
A Synapse Analytics dedicated SQL pool named SQLDW

Dedicated SQL Pool SQLDW contains a dimensional model that contains the following tables.


SQLDW contains the following additional tables.


SQLDW contains a view named dbo.CustomerPurchases that creates a distinct list of values from dbo.Customer [customerID], dbo.Customer [CustomerEmail], dbo.Product [ProductID] and dbo.Product [ProductName].
The sales data in SQLDW is updated every 30 minutes. Records in dbo.SalesTransactions are updated in SQLDW up to three days after being created. The records do NOT change after three days.

Power BI Litware has a new Power BI tenant that contains an empty workspace named Sales Analytics.
All users have Power BI Premium per user licenses.
IT data analytics are workspace administrators. The IT data analysts will create datasets and reports.
A single imported dataset will be created to support the companys sales analytics goals. The dataset will be refreshed every 30 minutes.

Requirements
Analytics Goals Litware identifies the following analytics goals:
Provide historical reporting of sales by product and channel over time.
Allow sales managers to perform ad hoc sales reporting with minimal effort.
Perform market basket analysis to understand which products are commonly purchased in the same transaction.
Identify which customers should receive promotional emails based on their likelihood of purchasing promoted products.
Litware plans to monitor the adoption of Power BI reports over time. The company wants custom Power BI usage reporting that includes the percent change of users that view reports in the Sales Analytics workspace each month.

Security Requirements Litware identifies the following security requirements for the analytics environment:
All the users in the sales department and the marketing department must be able to see Power BI reports that contain market basket analysis and data about which customers are likely to purchase a product.

Litware identifies the following development process requirements:
SQLDW and datalake1 will act as the development environment. Once feature development is complete, all entities in synapseworkspace1 will be promoted to a test workspace, and then to a production workspace.
Power BI content must be deployed to test and production by using deployment pipelines.
All SQL scripts must be stored in Azure Repos.
The IT data analysts prefer to build Power BI reports in Synapse Studio.
You need to configure the Sales Analytics workspace to meet the ad hoc reporting requirements.

Overview Contoso, Ltd. is a company that sells enriched financial data to a variety of external customers.
Contoso has a main office in Los Angeles and two branch offices in New York and Seattle.

Existing Environment
Data Infrastructure Contoso has a 50-TB data warehouse that uses an instance of SQL Server on Azure Virtual Machines.
The data warehouse populates an Azure Synapse Analytics workspace that is accessed by the external customers. Currently, the customers can access all the data.
Contoso has one Power BI workspace named FinData that contains a single dataset. The dataset contains financial data from around the world. The workspace is used by 10 internal users and one external customer. The dataset has the following two data sources: the data warehouse and the Synapse Analytics serverless SQL pool.
Users frequently query the Synapse Analytics workspace by using Transact-SQL.

User Problems Contoso identifies the following user issues:
Some users indicate that the visuals in Power BI reports are slow to render when making filter selections.
Users indicate that queries against the serverless SQL pool fail occasionally because the size of tempdb has been exceeded.
Users indicate that the data in Power BI reports is stale. You discover that the refresh process of the Power BI model occasionally times out.

Planned Changes Contoso plans to implement the following changes:
Into the existing Power BI dataset, integrate an external data source in JSON that is accessible by using the REST API.
Build a new dataset in the FinData workspace by using data from the Synapse Analytics dedicated SQL pool.
Provide all the customers with their own Power BI workspace to create their own reports. Each workspace will use the new dataset in the FinData workspace.
Implement subscription levels for the customers. Each subscription level will provide access to specific rows of financial data.
Deploy prebuilt datasets to Power BI to simplify the query experience of the customers.
Provide internal users with the ability to incorporate machine learning models loaded to the dedicated SQL pool.
Which two possible tools can you use to identify what causes the report to render slowly? Each correct answer presents a complete solution.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.

  • A. Synapse Studio
  • B. DAX Studio
  • C. Azure Data Studio
  • D. Performance analyzer in Power BI Desktop
