To be able to use a parameter value as servername in a SQL connection.
Change the parameter value, and all datasets bound to that datasource using this parameter as target gets updated at once (using the same credentials).

RE: parameter datasource

That is already possible via M: I have a parameter "dbEvironment" with values prod, acc, sandbox, and use it (Advanced Editor):

Source = Sql.Database("sql-" & dbEnvironment & "", "main-sqldb-datamart-" & dbEnvironment),
DIM_COMPANY= Source{[Schema=opco &"_Finance",Item="DIM_COMPANY"]}[Data]
