I hope you can join me at the Chicago Microsoft Technology Center for the PASS Business Analytics Day, on Wednesday, January 11, 2017.
The focus of this hands-on workshop is building business solutions with Power BI Desktop and the Power BI service. We will cover both self-service and enterprise scenarios, with data from files and on-premises data sources; focusing on core skills using Power Query “M”, modeling techniques, DAX measures and visualization design. At the end, you will have a complete solution built from real business data, shaped, cleansed and modeled; with a dashboard and interactive report visuals ready for analysis.
You will also learn about different options to deploy and integrate Power BI into your local reporting servers and secure web application through embedding and web publishing. You will see how Power BI works with R to add forecasting, predictions and advanced statistical analytics. See how custom visuals are used to extend visual analysis and how Power BI may be used for live streaming, DirectQuery to on-prem database systems and direct connect with Analysis Services to architect large-scale business data solutions.
Register to attend the Mastering Power BI Solutions session at PASS Business Analytics Day. Make sure you bring your laptop with Power BI Desktop already installed before the event. All the materials will be provided at the beginning of the workshop.
