Microsoft Power BI in Office 365: Your first Roadmap

The learning curve with a new technology is always a mixture of excitement and challenge. Seeing the great new features in a product often generates some inspiration to implement new solutions for clients. On the other hand, the process of learning about the depth of the functionality and the scope (and even limits) of features is also critical in assessing the value of a tool. This webcast has two objectives: first, to provide a demonstration of a solution using Power BI for Office 365, and second, to walk through the primary components of Power BI, their specifications and integration points, and any limitations. The attendee will get a chance to see a live demo of Power BI in Office 365 in action, and also gain understanding of all the pieces of Power BI. The webcast will not cover the steps to create the demo, nor spend a great deal of time on any one feature The goal is to demonstrate the type of content you can create, and what tools exist “under the hood”.
