Incremental Refresh on Large Power BI Semantic Models

Soheil Bakhshi needs to refresh a lot of data:

Implementing incremental refresh on Power BI is usually straightforward if we carefully follow the implementation steps. However in some real-world scenarios, following the implementation steps is not enough. In different parts of my latest book, Expert Data Modeling with Power BI, 2’nd Edition, I emphasis the fact that understanding business requirements is the key to every single development project and data modelling is no different. Let me explain it more in the context of incremental data refresh implementation.

Read on for that explanation, as well as a few tips to make things work a bit more smoothly.
