Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Microsoft’s Power BI has taken the world by storm since its release in 2015. This best in class business analytics solution lets you connect to hundreds of data sources and visualize your data using dashboards and reports that can be shared throughout your organization.
Power BI has changed a lot in the past year and continues to have monthly, and at times weekly, updates and features added. To keep up with these monthly changes, be sure to check out our blog for Power BI Monthly Digest. There are many moving parts within Power BI and if you’re just starting out, it can be a bit confusing.
In a recent webinar, Dustin Ryan, Data Platform Solution Architect with Microsoft, provided an overview of the Power BI ecosystem to help eliminate confusion and understand the moving parts.
