US-Analytics RPD Merge Script: see on Github

Git is a cornerstone technology for anyone looking to improve the efficiency of their development team. It can help improve code quality, expedite release schedules, and reduce development costs. Without a Source Code Management (SCM) tool such as Git, developers are handicapped while the competition continues to innovate.

Lucky for us, we still use our Enterprise BI application, which guarantees accuracy and security through a governed data warehouse. Leveraging our Enterprise BI application as a data source, while developing reports with Power BI, we can create a secure, accurate, and reliable workflow.
