This is the kickoff meeting for Birmingham's newly formed Modern Excel & Power BI User Group!

The world's data, for better or worse, is mostly analyzed with Excel - and to the surprise of many Excel has changed a lot since Excel 2013 when Microsoft introduced powerful new features into the application (Power Query, Power Pivot). In 2015 Microsoft bundled the same set of features into Power BI to compete more directly with enterprise business intelligence applications like Tableau and Qlik.

Let's get together and connect. In name, this group is about a particular set of tools, but I'd like to create an atmosphere that is more about data & analytics professionals coming together to talk about common challenges. The point of the tools is to help organizations make better decisions and I'd like to keep that front of mind in everything we do.

Looking forward to meeting everyone!
