Hi Everyone,

I need to migrate Ssas multi dimensional cubes to Azure Analysis services. Do I need to convert to Tabular models before migrating ? Please guide me the best way to migrate to Azure Analysis Services

Thank you

    Unfortunately, Multidimensional Cube is not supported in Azure Analysis Service.
    There is no direct way to "convert" the model type. You could have to reconstructure the project in Tabular model in SSAS. And I would suggest to do so as Tabular is better supported in Azure.

    Azure Analysis Services only supports tabular models so if you want to use that you will need to rebuild your models using Tabular. The only option for multi-dim cubes on Azure is to run them in a VM running SQL Server Analysis Services
