If you are developing analytics and want to show the results or just want to add a visualization which is not included in Power BI, adding R code to Power BI can resolve those issues. This session will demonstrate including some neat visuals in Power BI with R, how those differ from the R visuals in Power BI, and what you need to know to have a successful deployment. This session will also cover how this integration will work in Power BI Report Server and Power BI Premier. Do not know anything about R? Then come to learn as there is no expectation that anyone will need to know anything about R prior to this session. Attendees will learn why they might want to learn about R to be able to solve some of the questions they are presently addressing in Power BI.
