Power View for Multidimensional Models              


The ability to create Power View reports against multidimensional models was first introduced in SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 Cumulative Update 4. Power View for Multidimensional Models functionality is now included as part of SQL Server 2014.

This functionality helps organizations maximize existing BI investments by enabling multidimensional models (also known as OLAP cubes) to be used with the latest client reporting tools. Depending on the types of data in the multidimensional model, users can easily create a variety of dynamic visualizations from tables and matrices, to bubble charts and geographical maps. Multidimensional models now also support queries using Data Analysis Expressions (DAX).

Power View for Multidimensional Models requires the built-in Power View reporting capability in SQL Server 2014 Reporting Services (in SharePoint mode). Other versions of Power View, specifically the Power View Add-in in Excel 2013, do not support multidimensional models.
