- Power BI Overview
"We all know that businesses rely on applications for everything from sales, talent, field service, finance, manufacturing, to marketing and more. These applications provide users with information they need to do their jobs well. However, statistics tell us that fewer than 22% of employees have access to analytical insights that would help them make decisions based on facts and not opinions. And in some ways, this number being so low makes sense because delivering even the minimum is still fairly complex. You have to connect to a variety of data sources, you have to create visualizations, ones that make sense… and rendering on multiple platforms. As the No.1 BI tool according to Gartner, Power BI enhances your experience with your data, which allows you to connect any data, analyze it in any way and rendering it anywhere. This is a level 100 presentation, the presenter will provide an overview of Power BI and demonstrate some of its key capabilities." Our presenter Annie Xu is a Microsoft cloud solution architect focusing on Data and AI. She has comprehensive educational and working experience in business intelligence, database development and data engineering. In addition, she is building up her skills around AI and Machine Learning. Annie speaks at DMV area Power BI, SQL and Azure user groups.
