PowerPlatform Session at DataGrillen 2019

Today I had the pleasure to present a session about the Microsoft PowerPlatform at the amazing #DataGrillen event in Lingen (Germany). It was my first time I had the change to come to Lingen and I definitely do not regret it..

Perfectly organized by William Durkin (t) and Ben Weissman (t), we had two nice and enjoyable days at the IT Zentrum Lingen.

As the name of the event implies, there needs to be a Grillparty (and a decent Grillparty needs beer, yes there was beer involved) .. and that happend…. at the end of the first day!

On Friday – 09:15am, first timeslot in the morning – I started my presentation about the #Microsoft #PowerPlatform – describing some of the possibilities YOU can try and work out with #PowerBI, #PowerApps and #MicrosoftFlow!

For those of you that attended my session, thanks for coming by and the cosy vibes.. I really enjoyed my session! If you are interested in the slides, you can download them >>here.

The dates for next years event are already announced: May 28th & 29th 2020! See you hopefully again in Lingen!

Power BI Dataflows – My Session at the Virtual Power BI Days (2019-01)

Today morning (08:00 am Austrian time on a Sunday) I had the pleasure of presenting a session at the Virtual Power BI Days (2019-01 edition).

Power BI Days are an event (mainly) organized by Jan Mulkens (t) – One day of “real” conference in Belgium on Sunday and one day of virtual conference filled with webinars.

My session today focused on Power BI dataflows, the new data preparation option of PowerBI.com.

Let your data flow – Introducing Power BI dataflows

Power BI serves as a self-service BI platform with a strong focus on data preparation and interactive analysis. With the introduction of Power BI dataflows, self-service data preparation is brought to a new level. The main concepts used are:

* Usage of common and mature technologies: data is stored as entities following the Common Data Model in Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2;
* Integration: dataflows are created and managed in Power BI app workspace
* Self-Service and low-code/no-code – Power Query is used as data preparation engine
* Connectivity: dataflows will support a variety of different data sources (including cloud-based and on-premises sources)

Join this session if you would like to learn more about the basic concepts and especially see Power BI dataflows in action.

Jan will put up a recording of the session (and the slides) at recordings.powerbidays.com.

If you do not want to wait for the slides, you can download them directly from here:
