Featured Presentation:

The "New" Power BI: Is It Any Good?

Chris Webb, Principal Program Manager Microsoft

You've heard all the hype about Power BI. You may also have heard that Microsoft have rebooted it and completely changed direction, moving away from the focus on Excel and Office 365 to an architecture. Things are changing fast in the world of Power BI, but as the ‘new’ Power BI reaches RTM the big question is: is it any good? Can I use it? How is it different from the ‘old’, Excel-centric Power BI? How does this fit with what’s planned for BI in SQL Server 2016? In this session you’ll find answers to all of these questions, see some demos of the new Power BI, and by the end be able to make your mind up about whether Power BI is for you or not.
