We live in a stressful era. We can’t wait for months to deliver our results to the business. In a agile way of working we continuously deliver small artifacts, but with that the risk of mistakes is growing exponentially as well.

Power BI is a great self-service tool to transform data into action in a fast and visual way. But how does this self-service tool fit for enterprise deployments? Governance and maintenance is often forgotten. We need to add some structure to it!

During this session Marc will share his thoughts and best-practices about how to apply DTAP (Development, Test, Acceptance and Production) to your Power BI solutions. A session which will give you handles to use Power BI on enterprise scale!
