BI204 - There's No Time Like the Present - Real Time Reporting with Power BI

Power BI has many options for keeping your data up to date, but what happens when scheduled refreshes simply aren't enough? What do you do when real time or near real time reporting on your data is necessary? Fortunately, Power BI has you covered here as well. From real-time datasets, to Direct Query and the Aggregations feature, there are more than a few options for accomplishing this goal, but they all do come with a few tradeoffs. This demonstration laden session will examine all of the techniques available to Power BI for reporting on your data in real time, highlight some of the things to watch out for, and how to design for them. If you need your data more up to date than what refresh schedules can provide, then this session is for you.

PLT204 - Creating Robust Solutions with Power Apps Portals, Power Automate, DataVerse & MS 365 Lists

While Power Apps canvas apps are easy to build, they unfortunately don't allow for much interaction with external users, especially not anonymous ones. While that may seem like a hard gap to cross, with Power Apps Portals, you can do just that! Join Nick Brattoli as he demonstrates some of the capabilities of Power Apps Portals, DataVerse, Power Automate, and even Microsoft lists in this information-packed hour. He'll show things such as: • Data structures with DataVerse and Microsoft Lists • An overview of the Power Apps Portals interface vs canvas apps • A simple Power Apps Portal that allows users to view and enter information • How to use Power Automate to send data between Lists and DataVerse and your portal If you're a pro at Power Apps canvas apps already, come check out this session to see what else is possible!

PLT205 - Manage your Power Platform Governance like a Rockstar

You've managed to get Power Platform introduced and even adopted within your organization, which is awesome. But are you sure that everyone is using it the way they should? Are you up at night wondering whether • Do my citizen developers know the confines in which they can and should build solutions? • Are there apps and flows that are beyond the rights and capabilities of my citizen developers? • Is any of my organizational business data being compromised? • Are my citizen developers able to leverage Power Platform for their business needs without negatively impacting themselves or their peers? • Are my citizen developers following organizational best practices recommended by my IT department? • Is my IT department being taxed with additional support for flow makers beyond their means? If you've answered yes to any of these questions, then you shouldn't miss this session, where I will introduce and demonstrate topics such as • Data Loss Prevention in Power Platform • Building a governance matrix to establish what solutions should be owned by whom • Leveraging the Power Apps Center of Excellence to audit and report on flow usage within your organization • Create an audit trail of activities performed by users • Creating organizational templates

Power Automate helps us to create intelligent automated workflows between your favorite apps and services to get notifications, synchronize files, collect data, and do much more. Power Automate ( Microsoft Flow ) has opened a Pandora box of features that developers can use to build real-life enterprise-grade solutions using the low code paradigm. For example calling the SharePoint REST APIs, calling Microsoft Graph APIs, calling External web services, and integrating with Azure services such as Azure Functions and Azure Dev Ops. In this demo-driven session, we will cover how developers can use some of the rich feature sets of Power Automate ( Microsoft Flow ) and build real-life enterprise-grade business applications. You will learn: • How to consume the REST Endpoints using Power Automate ( Microsoft Flow ) • How to consume Microsoft Graph APIs using Power Automate ( Microsoft Flow ) • How to call Azure Function from Power Automate ( Microsoft Flow ) • How to build enterprise-grade business applications in Microsoft 365 using Power Automate ( Microsoft Flow ) • How to convert Power Automate ( Microsoft Flow ) to Logic Apps
