Session: Environmental Intelligence: How We Use Power BI to Bring Data to Life
The environmental industry is literally drowning in data! Join Alice and Christian from their new company DiscoverEI, where they show how they combine Power BI and motion graphics to bring environmental data to life. This will be an interactive session packed full of Power BI tips and tricks, where we showcase story telling techniques using case studies from the environmental industry. We will share clever DAX patterns and tricks to make your reports more dynamic. We share techniques on how to get the most out of your bookmarks, Q&A and report page tooltips to create intuitive dashboards for a seamless user experience. For the AFL fans in the room, we will also show our AFL Power BI dashboard, to discover new insights into the history of our national game.

At DiscoverEI combine data analytics, computer animations and environmental modelling to transform mountains of data into practical, useful, decision-guiding insights. Alice Drummond and Christian Borovac started DiscoverEI in April 2019, and are using Power BI to help our environmental managers and water authorities secure a more sustainable environment for tomorrow.
