My Brain Hurts: Presenting Data with Microsoft Pro

RSVP: None

Presenting Data with Microsoft Products

There is an old saying, “May you live in interesting times.” It is both a blessing and a curse. Microsoft certainly makes viewing data interesting. Excel, Excel Services, SQL Server Reporting Services, PerformancePoint Services, PowerPivot, Power View are the tools Microsoft proposes. It’s no wonder companies are confused. Craig Utley looks at each of these tools, showing not only the capabilities, but providing guidelines for the strengths and weaknesses of the tools based on the target audience. If you want to get a handle on the confusing world of Microsoft BI delivery tools, this talk is for you.


Craig Utley is a Senior Architect with CTS and a former Program Manager with the SQL Server Customer Advisory Team (SQLCAT), where he focused on business intelligence. Craig has been involved in the Microsoft BI space since the betas of SQL Server 7.0 and has consulted on over 50 BI implementations worldwide, including the largest Microsoft data warehouse in the world. He is a former MVP in both SQL Server and C# and has written three books and more than 35 articles.

BI in the sky (with diamonds)

Speaker: Johan Ludvig

Registration URL: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7755680509014880001

Microsoft is really delivering up on it's "Cloud first" mantra with rapid releases of new functionality to it's PowerBI portifolio, functionality that won't arrive on-premise until next Office release - if ever. So you, or your manager has decided to give PowerBI a go. But the budget for this is a bit tight, and maybe you're not allowed to use the existing server. Azure is ready for you. But what Azure service do you choose, and how do you let PowerBI and Azure play nicely together? That's what this webinar is here to tell you.
