  • 1.  Tableau to Power BI

    Posted May 23, 2018 08:26 AM
    Good Morning,

    Just moved from the DC Metro Area to the Atlanta Metro Area. I recently have had to transition to using PowerBI coming into a new position in the past few months. Prior to this I was proficient in using <g class="gr_ gr_178 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" id="178" data-gr-id="178">Tabelau</g> for around 4 years within the healthcare industry. I wanted to query the group for a few things:

    • For anyone who has made the switch from Tableau to Power BI, how has your experience been and what are the pros and cons <g class="gr_ gr_706 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" id="706" data-gr-id="706">from</g> making this transition
    • Does anyone participate in Tableau Makeover Mondays or a Power BI equivalent?

    A lot of the Power BI events in the metro area are Microsoft-centric,  although there was a Tableau user group on Meetup (but I don't see it out there now). You can check out the Modern Excel meetup (Atlanta Modern Excel User Group (Alpharetta, GA)

    which has been pretty quiet recently but might be a good venue for a "makeover" kind of event. There is a SQL Saturday BI Edition coming up in September SQLSaturday #800 - Atlanta - BI Edition 2018 > Event Home
