Session 2: Building Your Myth Busting Lab With Power BI
By Julie Koesmarno, SQL Server MVP
Did you know that a large portion of Information Workers’ and Data Analysts’ tasks are akin to “myth busting”? How can Power BI be used for these myth busting tasks? What if myth busting in business applications can be as easily done as few clicks or simply by asking questions in plain English?
Myth busting requires gathering facts, modeling data for repeatable usage and/or testing, exploring data captured, proofing a few theories, coming up with “what-ifs” and making a well informed conclusion. This session will demonstrate how to create an ideal Myth Busting lab for all these aspects all in one suite, Power BI. The demo will show how these activities are played by Information Workers, Data Analysts and IT Administration individually and how Power BI is used for enabling team collaboration. You will learn best practices on delivering self service and mobile Business Intelligence solutions with Power BI, that you can try at home and no safety goggles required!
