Sliced Aggregates in Power BI

Different modeling approaches can speed up performance of your Power BI dataset - albeit with the tradeoff of additional complexity. One situation is where users need to access a very large dataset, but typically apply the same set of filters - resulting in a small subset of rows meeting the needs of most queries. A sliced aggregate approach (implemented in the data model + DAX) can be used to make your models performant where they need to be, but still allow the full range of reporting.
