Power BI Weekly Issue 15: 9th July 2019

Later on today (at 11AM PST), Christian Wade is hosting a live event to talk about the upcoming GA of Power BI Aggregations, an exciting feature enabling analysis over datasets consisting of trillions of rows. (Unfortunately I can't join this as I'll be attending the monthly London Power BI user group - let me know if you're going too!) Elsewhere, we've been told about the support for non-Premium Power BI datasets in Power BI Paginated Report Builder and that you can now have Multiple data source definitions on the On-premises data gateway for the same data source.
