Key note speaker for Session 1:

Rui Romano lives in Portugal and currently works as a Head of BI Team at DevScope.
He is a Data Platforrm MVP since 2017.
He has been Developing & Architecting software solutions since 2003 always focused in the Business Intelligence area.

In this talk you will learn how to use Power BI to prototype/develop a BI solution in days and then (if needed) evolve it into a fully scalable Azure BI solution.

The goal of the session is to show, with a real-world example, how to use Power BI as a prototype solution (with real data) and the process to scale-it-up to a fully scalable Azure BI solution using Azure AS and Azure SQL DB.

In the process I will share a few tips & tools that you can use to help you in that process.

Key note speaker for Session 2:
Darren Taylor Business Analyst, Corporate IT - Data, Reporting & Analytics at Idex Corporation

His talk will be a user story (so far) on how Idex Corporation are working with our business units to implement a flexible PBI visualisation solution that will work for all business units around the world. And the methods we used internally to determine the best approach for data modelling.
