Power BI is the new service from Microsoft that is creating a real buzz in the analytics and business intelligence community. Business users can get data from almost any source, visualise it and share their insights. It also has great power under the covers to do sophisticated data preparation and modelling and build beautiful dashboards. Users can ask questions of their data with natural language and Power BI will do it's best to answer you .
This group will help you get started with Power BI. We'll offer a mix of introductory talks but we'll also have some sessions for the experts as well. Some of the events will be hands-on.
We meet monthly in Central London on a weekday evening. Please come along - you will be sure of a warm welcome from the organisers
Power BI is relatively new but already has 5 million subscribers - we'll show you why!

In this session, David will cover PowerBI must know speed up tricks
As a creator, PowerBI can be slow to use than its Microsoft Office counterparts, it’s got fewer shortcuts, multi select abilities and navigation speed ups. There are often multiple ways to perform key tasks but which is the fastest? We will not cover troubleshooting performance issues, but rather speeding up when authoring in PowerBI.
Even if you’re a productivity guru I guarantee there’ll be something new for you in this demo filled session. We will look at some shortcuts & speed up tricks across the board including:
1. Power Query – a few shortcuts exist, and where they don’t, you’ll find these tips golden!
2. The recently updated model view
3. Creating & editing measures
4. The data view
5. Building visuals
6. Formatting visuals
7. Arranging visual
