Power BI with Melissa Coates


Join me and the Enterprise Developers Guild on Tuesday, February 23, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. In this session we will review Power BI V2 architecture and integration points with corporate data sources, SaaS services, Azure, and third party apps. We will examine and demonstrate key capabilities in the Power BI web-based service, Power BI Desktop, Excel, and mobile apps. Implementation options for Power BI involving cloud, on-premises, and hybrid approaches will be explored. Finally, the concept of “Bimodal BI” will be introduced with use cases for how Power BI might be utilized for both self-service BI and certain corporate BI initiatives.

The meeting presenter is Melissa Coates.

Formerly a CPA, Melissa is ridiculously proud to be an IT geek and downright giddy to be a Data Platform MVP.
