Posted by denglishbi on March 19, 2014
The time is ticking and we are just a week and a half away from the SQLSaturday Madison event which kicks off on Friday, March 28 with three pre-conference events – SQLSaturday Madison #287 Pre-Cons Registration Now Open. Then on Saturday the main event and the schedule is rockin’ with a jam packed day with presentations from the SQL community, MVPs, and MCMs – SQLSaturday Madison #287 Schedule. Just to name a few there is Jonathan Kehayias, Joseph Sack, Lara Rubbelke, Paul Timmerman, Jason Strate, Jes Borland, Ted Krueger, Steve Jones, Brent Ozar, Kalen Delaney, and many more!
I will be heading over to Madison Thursday and will be doing an all-day pre-con event Self-Service BI to the Max. I am looking forward to going over the Power BI suite covering Power Query, Power Pivot, Power View, Power Map, and more. As of right now there are still a few seats remaining, so if you are attending the event or are in the general area get signed up and join us:)
On Saturday I will be continuing the adventure and doing my talk on Delivering Self-Service BI with Power.
In this session, we will discuss the enhancements and new features that are provided with Excel 2013 as Microsoft continues its roadmap with self-service BI. First we will go over the changes that have been made in Excel 2013, covering the new features. From there we will show how Power Pivot models can be used to integrate and load data to be used for analysis. Lastly, we will look at using Power View inside Excel to provide self-service reporting capabilities that are highly interactive.
So what are you waiting for, head over to the event site and checkout what is going on and follow the hashtag #sqlsatMadison – SQLSaturday Madison #287 event home.
Hope to see you there!
