Excel is the most popular analytics tool in the world. We’ve all used it at one point and most folks in our organization wouldn’t know what to do if they didn’t have it. Power BI touts itself as the best self service analytics tool . . . since Excel. In this session, we explore the scenarios in which Power Bi can help your organization, what it does really well, and discuss areas the Microsoft marketing team may have been a bit too cavalier describing. We touch on licensing and how you might get started. If you have been using Power Bi, we invite you to join us to share your experience with the group.
