    People from all walks of life came along to the Power BI talk as part of Future Fest Hobart, where the folks at Enterprize once again went to loads of effort to help us set up the event and promote it to their member base.

    We talked about how Blundstone has been using Power BI for business reporting in relation to logistics, sales and finance - highlighting just how versatile but appropriate Power BI is for Blundstone's needs. It was about creating awareness about Power BI and the possibilities for application to diverse disciplines, and some very interesting conversations followed from it.

    Nicholas Oldfield won himself a pair of Blundstone kicks for asking the most burning question of all: "How do you manage requests for new reports and new dashboards in order to prevent a slew of similar reports?" Great question, Nick! Blundstone has definitely experienced that dilemma, which is why they've set up a Data Solutions Unit to deal with prioritising and scoping out such requests.

    Thanks everyone for attending this event, and keep an eye out for the next one in a few weeks from now, where one of our members in the audience pictured above, will be doing a guest talk about creating eating visually appealing reports that are easy to use and easy to create.

    Hope to see you there!
