Nikola Ilic takes a look:

A few months ago, while scrolling through posts on social media, one of them immediately grabbed my attention! It was about a new tool, called DAX Optimizer, which promised to identify and remove performance bottlenecks in your DAX formulas.

One important note is that this is not a free tool, as Nikola mentions. Read on for more thoughts about how it works, what it picks up, and whether it’s a good fit for your environment given the price.
