Power BI Weekly Issue 16: 16th July 2019

I'd like to extend a warm welcome to those who have signed up after seeing me introduce Power BI Weekly at the London Power BI User Group last week, and, of course, a very warm welcome to the rest of this week's new subscribers. This week, we've been provided the On-premises data gateway July 2019 update and we've been given the ability to Send dataset refresh notifications to others - a very handy feature for notifying relevant parties of refresh failures. Another Power BI-related announcement is that query interleaving for Azure Analysis Services is now in development. Also in this week's edition, Lars Schreiber has written an interesting article describing How to identify Measures not used in your pbix file, utilizing some SSAS DMVs and the new performance analyzer feature.
