Talking about PowerPlatform Dataflows at #M365Philly 2021

This time of the year it’s almost like: “Another week, another session” – and this week follows this pattern ­čÖé

On Saturday, 15th May 2021, I will talk about Power Platform Dataflows at M365 Philly Virtual 2021 edition:

https://www.spsevents.org/event/sharepoint-saturday-philly/

The event itself is a two days event, starting Friday the 14th and continuing on Saturday, May 15th 2021.

Registration is free and still open: https://www.spsevents.org/event/sharepoint-saturday-philly/schedule/

Session abstract:

PowerPlatform Dataflows ÔÇôPowerQuery (and more) in the Cloud

With PowerPlatform dataflows, users can bring PowerQuery functionality to a cloud-only life. Created in the cloud, processed in the cloud and storing results in the cloud, dataflows can be seen as cloud native part of the ETL within the PowerPlatform.
After their initial start in the Power BI universe, they now reached out into other parts of the PowerPlatform and be one of the future options of ETL pipelines to transfer data into data lakes.
In addition to data transformation, dataflows can be enriched with AI functionality to bring more ML power into your ETL processes.
Join this session if you want to learn more about the current feature set available and see what is new and possible with data preparation in the cloud with PowerPlatform dataflows.

Have fun with the Power Platform,

Wolfgang

I thought Power BI Premium per User (PPU) is only 10$? How to purchase the add-on to Power BI PRO

After the initial announcement of the competitive price for Power BI Premium per User (PPU) (20$/user/month) AND the add-on price for existing Power BI PRO users ($10/user/month) the questions from our customers how to purchase the add-on arrived.

This blog post is here for future Wolfi – How to quick and easy find the Power BI Premium per User add-on license.

Initially I told my customers, purchase the PPU license in the Microsoft 365 portal and thought that it should be an easy deal.. but hey – it’s licensing, Microsoft licensing involved…

The place where to buy the PPU add-on is not that obvious as it looks like.

  • In the services catalog, let’s search for “Power BI” and have a look at the result list. The result list only contains one entry for the PPU license which is the “full” PPU license, not the upgrade.. hmmm…
  • Clear the search results.
  • Select the Add-ons category and search for Premium. Et voila – here it is .. the Add-On license for your existing Power BI PRO license..

If you know the answer where to find the upgrade license, it’s easy…

Happy Premium-ing…

Power BI f├╝r Dummies – die 2. Auflage ist verf├╝gbar!

Ich muss es nicht sch├Ânreden – das Gef├╝hl, sein eigenes, gebundenes, fertiges Buch in den H├Ąnden zu halten ist schon ein sch├Ânes ­čśë

Die erste Ausgabe von Power BI f├╝r Dummies erschien im Dezember 2019 und irgendwas d├╝rften wir richtig gemacht haben – der Lagerbestand der ersten Auflage neigte sich dem Ende zu und au├čerdem erfuhr Power BI sehr viele Updates und neue Features, dass der Verlag gemeinsam mit uns die Entscheidung traf: Es ist Zeit f├╝r eine 2. Auflage!

Nach dem Ver├Âffentlichungsdatum am 14. April 2021 war es heute endlich soweit: das Paket von Wiley lag vor der Haust├╝r… darin enthalten: meine Autorenexemplare!

mein erstes unpacking “video” ­čśë

Mehr Infos zum Buch gibt’s hier: Wiley-VCH – Power BI f├╝r Dummies A2

Danke an meine Mitautoren – Tillmann, Oliver und Frank – schlu├čendlich haben wir es wieder geschafft! Ebenso ein gro├čer Dank an Frau Baulig und das Team von Wiley!

Happy Power BI-ing, Viel Spa├č beim Datenauswerten!

Global Azure Bootcamp 2021 – Azure Synapse & Purview plus CI/CD for the BI Developer

This years edition of the Global Azure Bootcamp is scheduled for the end of this week. As in the last years, this event is a global one. The global webpage lists 6 continents, >550 speakers and more than 530 sessions around the globe (https://globalazure.net/)

Global Azure Bootcamp Austria 2021

The Austrian Edition takes place on Friday, 16th April 2021 and following the tradition, Rainer Stropek and team are organizing this event.

I am happy that I can again join the event as a speaker and for sure as an attendee – the agenda looks great (https://globalazure.at/) and is filled with a wide range of different Azure topics.

My colleagues Mario Schnalzenberger, Stefan Denninger and Johannes Lagler-Gr├╝ner (cubido & ACP) are also presenting – We provide sessions around industrial IoT, IoT central, Azure Sentinel and Azure Synapse Analytics and Azure Purview.

Reserve the time – the event is free, virtual and definitely worth visiting! ­čśë

Global Azure Virtual 2021 – L├╝dinghausen

In the afternoon, I am virtually visiting L├╝dinghausen, Germany for another session under the Global Azure umbrella. This time, it’s DevOps time for the Business Intelligence developer. Often, the continuous integration (CI) aspect is underrepresented in business intelligence projects. Therefore, this session should guide you through some of the options how you can bring a business intelligence project under source control, automagically deploy changes and even publish new Power BI reports into your Power Bi environment.

My session – Continuous Integration for the BI Developer starts at 3pm on the – yeah- Main stage ­čśë

Registration is free and available here:
