Absolutely amazing…. The Microsoft Data Insights Summit was a series of one great learning experience after another. My greatest impressions of the summit were that the Power BI community is coming together as a cohesive group of data professionals. I think Power BI and Microsoft data platform have a solid story now as a solution rather than just a product and it was apparent that business people and technologies are taking it seriously.
In my post before the Data Insight Summit, I shared an overview of the two sessions we were preparing to deliver. It took the organizers only one day to post all the session recordings from the entire conference for public viewing. Let me say that again… every session, in its entirety, is available to watch for free online. Here are my two sessions.
I’m posting this just two days after the summit and the Advanced Data Transformation Techniques session recording has been viewed well over 1,000 times! Thank you for the tremendous interest in these topics. I teamed up with Brian Grant to demonstrate several real-world techniques for transforming data with Power Query.
In Power BI Options and Approaches, I showed how Power BI can be used as a first-class presentation tool to analyze and visualize enterprise data in on-premises databases such as SQL Server and Analysis Services.
