Three “Must-Attend” Sessions to Note

My Big Fat Power BI

Francesco De Chirico, Data Analytics Team Lead

The strong performance of the Power BI engine, coupled with its high data compression factor, often makes optimizing data models built with Power BI desktop unnecessary. In fact, this is a good practice that should always be expected in the development cycle of your models, regardless of size and complexity.

In this session, come learn some of the best practices to follow to optimize your models and the tools at your disposal to verify the actual level of optimization of the same. See how it is possible to collect, via DMV, all the useful information of the data structures of your models using Power BI desktop.


The Power Is Coming…

Frederik Bisback, Cloud Consultant

What’s the difference between Microsoft Flow and Logic Apps? Do you always need to use Logic Apps to create low coding automation between Azure and other applications?

This session will guide you through the differences of Microsoft Flow and Logic Apps, and teach you when to extend Microsoft Flow by using Azure Logic Apps services. Additionally, it will take a look at some examples of “how-to” combine Azure service connectors with Microsoft Flow and PowerApps.


Integrated use of Teams, Flow, and Power BI for Project Management

Andrea Martorana (MVP), Power BI Team Manager

Picture this: A working group has adopted Teams as their project management tool. Tasks are managed through integration with Planner or other external tools (Trello, Jira…). Wiki and OneNote are used for documentation, minutes of meetings, knowledge bases, etc.

But as we all know, not everything can be managed through Teams. This is where the Power Platform comes in. Come learn about this real-life scenario of integration obtained through the Power Platform and see how Project Management through a combination of these tools can result in efficiency and success.

If you’re ready to take your Power Platform knowledge to the next level by learning how to better Analyze with Power BI, Act with PowerApps, and Automate with Flow, now’s your time to
