Feb Monthly Meeting - Enabling limitless near-realtime experiences in PowerBI

Bringing data in near-realtime is a complex experience – involving multiple components and different limitations across the stack. With Streaming Dataflows we aim to bring you a low-code/no-code experience which abstracts away all the complexities of creating realtime experiences in PowerBI. During this session, we will cover how to go from receiving your data on EventHub to bringing that data to PowerBI in seconds (and build this pipeline in minutes 😊)

Krrish Dholakia is the PM working on realtime scenarios @ PowerBI (eg. Streaming Dataflows, APR, etc.). In this session, I'd love to discuss how you can use PowerBI to easily create 'real' real-time scenarios using Streaming Dataflows. This can be useful especially for Operations & Maintenance teams in scenarios where you have a large amounts of data being pumped in from the field and need to make decisions on a granular (second/minute/hour/day) basis. Some relevant scenarios include oil rig monitoring, factory maintenance, sales teams trying to run a large-scale sale (black Friday/cyber Monday/etc.), etc.
