Power BI has been a runaway success in adoption and mindshare, rocketing Microsoft past many of its business intelligence competitors. You may already know Power BI creates great looking visualizations, or that it runs on Windows, iOS, Android, and in the cloud. But do you know how to use it? And if you do, is your knowledge current with all the new features of this product that's updated on a monthly basis?

Come to this session for a combination quick intro to Power BI (including its technology underpinnings, the costs around it and, of course, how to use it) and primer on several newer features, including the decomposition tree visualization, natural language query/authoring and Power BI data management techniques. We'll even cover features released after this abstract is published.

You will learn:

  • Power BI Basics: Reports and dashboards on desktop, cloud and mobile
  • New and recent features like column profiling and the decomposition tree visualization
  • The latest in Q&A natural language features
  • Data management via data lineage and endorsed datasets
