Power BI Info Management and Data Stewardship

RSVP: None

Power BI Info Management and Data Stewardship

Business intelligence tools continue to improve, letting users shorten their time to insight and take that insight to more devices in more places. But this evolution of BI doesn’t change one fundamental fact of information management: You can’t gain insight from data you can’t access.

In this session, Matthew Roche and Ofer Ashkenazi will introduce the role of the data steward and the self-service information management capabilities included in Power Query and Power BI for Office 365, focusing on how Power BI empowers business users to add value to the organization.

Matthew Roche is a Senior Program Manager on the SQL Server product team, working on Self-Service Information Management (SSIM) in Power BI, and who has worked on the SQL Server Enterprise Information Management (EIM) platform including SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), Master Data Services (MDS) and Data Quality Services (DQS). Before joining Microsoft in 2008, Matthew was a business intelligence consultant and trainer and a Microsoft SQL Server MVP. In addition to implementing small- and large-scale BI solutions with SQL Server, Matthew has presented on SQL topics at major technical conferences, code camps, and user groups across the US and in Europe.

Ofer Ashkenazi is a Senior Product Planner with the Data Platform Group (Information Services). His focus is on Power BI, in particular Power Query, the Data Catalogue, and the Data Stewardship Experience in Power BI. Before this role, Ofer was the planner for SQL Azure and other cloud data services, including the Azure Data Marketplace. He was also the product planner and senior technical product manager with the Enterprise Application Platform Marketing team at Microsoft. Ofer’s roles include planning for new services releases, briefing market analysts, and presenting at conferences. Before joining Microsoft, Ofer served as a Microsoft Regional Director, BizTalk Server. At the same time, he managed a BizTalk Server consulting, training, and professional services business for a Microsoft partner.
