WRK401 - Everything you wanted to know about Power BI (but were afraid to ask!)

Power BI is the gold standard for cloud based report delivery. It’s very approachable – you can get up and running with it in minutes, at the same time, it’s very robust, secure and extensible. As you might expect, it has many pieces and nuances, and it’s important to understand what is possible, even if you may not take immediate advantage of some features, in order to understand what to use when. Join John White (MVP) and Jason Himmelstein (MVP) for this all-day tutorial which will help to guide you through building a complete analytical solution, using all the features of Power BI. We will start from nothing, and create queries that import and integrate data from many different sources. You will also learn how to refresh data using the on-premises data gateway and the personal gateway to connect to existing on-premises data from a variety of sources. In addition, you will see an overview of the many other additional features available in Power BI. At the end of this seminar you will be ready to not only start using Power BI for your projects, but you will also understand which approach is best for different situations. Bring your questions, and we’ll do our best to answer them.
