DirectionsEMEA 2021 in Milano

Last week was a special one – I went to a conference, a real conference. 🙂

DirectionsEMEA 2021 took place at Milan from Wednesday 27th to Friday 29th October. It was a kind of unusual conference for me – No data focus, no majority of Azure data or Power BI sessions – it was a conference about Business Central (Dynamics). AND – I learned a lot. For me, now it is clearer what Business Central is capable of, how to get data into Business Central and how to get data out of BC to perform data analysis upon that data.

Right after the registration – Full mask mode during the conference

My Sessions: Power BI, Azure Synapse, PowerPlatform Dataflows

I had the chance to present two sessions about data anyway.

T-10 minutes before the first session
T-15 min before the PowerPlatform dataflows session

The first session was about the relationship of Azure Synapse Analytics and Power BI. During this session I compared the two tools and how they can be used in the flow of data – from the datasource to data visualization.

Session 1 – Power BI and Azure Synapse – better together?

The second session was about PowerPlatform dataflows. I described the concept of dataflows, why they are needed and why they have been introduced. Next I compared the possibilities of Power BI dataflows versus PowerPlatform dataflows.

Session 2 – What are the possibilities of PowerPlatform dataflows?

What I really liked at the conference was the corona-save health procedures – temperature check plus check of the “green pass” everytime you entered the conference center. Plus mandatory wearing a mask anytime within a building..
