NY, London, Paris, Munich… Everybody's Talkin’ ‘bout Mobile BI

In 1995, Bill Gates said the goal at Microsoft was "... empowering people through great software any time, any place, and on any device.” Taking that to heart, 2013 will be known as the year of Microsoft Mobile BI. A lot of innovation has come out of the product teams over the past few months, including some exciting new mobile BI capabilities that can put on-the-go business leaders and information workers in the information driver seat (but no data exploring while driving, please!). Practically every reporting and dashboard product has a mobile capability, and some new tools have been designed specifically for tablet devices. Use Power View, SSRS reports, and Excel visuals on your iPad and Surface RT. Build and use compelling visual dashboards and analytic exploration on almost any device. Most importantly, learn to design the semantic model layer and security to make all the magic happen for your business.

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.
