6:30 PM: Puzzled About What Exactly Is Business Intelligence & Data Visualization?

Join Microsoft Team for an introduction to Power BI - a leader in business intelligence and data visualization. Participants will receive an overview of Power BI and learn of its value proposition with a demonstration and a hands-on experience. We will ensure that participants are engaged throughout and will walk away ready to implement what they have learned.

During this workshop, participants will learn how they can use Power BI to:

- Bring data into Power BI Desktop, and create a report.
- Publish to the Power BI service, where you create new visualizations or build dashboards.
- Share their dashboards with others, especially people who are on the go.
- View and interact with shared dashboards and reports in Power BI Mobile- apps.

Good To Know:
You’re welcome to bring your own device and will have a few available for those who may need a device to follow along.

7:30 PM: Transition to The PUB Tampa Bay (International Mall & Bay Street).

Next MeetUp: Thursday, October, the 10th in Tampa.
