Please arrive around 5:30 - 5:45 for a 6pm start. (It is important to note that the building lifts get locked at 6pm). Most meetings will be finished by around 7:30pm. The format of each meeting will normally be an introductory level session for 20 minutes to half an hour, followed by a more advanced level session for around an hour.

[BI] Power BI - Beyond the Basics

Power BI is a Microsoft's new self-service BI platform for both on-premise and cloud-based data. It enables business Power Users to make the most of their data by using the new data discovery, analysis and visualisation features in Excel and Office 365, in an easy to use environment that they are already familiar with.

In this session we will go through the main features and capabilities of Power BI using an end-to-end scenario. We will also discuss best practices and tips along the way that will enable you to get the best out of this new Microsoft technology.
