Power BI is a big success story in the world of self-service BI. Microsoft has built a great toolset for easy visualization and storytelling of business data, especially for non-technical persons. The great work is also reflected in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant where Microsoft is a leader for Analytics and BI Platforms for 12 consecutive years. Link:  https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/microsoft-a-leader-in-gartners-magic-quadrant-for-analytics-and-bi-platforms-for-12-consecutive-years/ In a nutshell Power BI is a set of tools and services which are used for creating appealing and interactive reports and dashboards which can be shared with colleagues, ...

So many times, I have asked Mr. Google to give me a solution to pass user name as a parameter to POWERBI report for various development purposes. Google gives a lot of details but unfortunately, they do not suit my requirements. However, I would like to thank all people who contribute their ideas and implementations on all the forums in Google. I hope my way is the perfect alternative way to pass username as a parameter and we can even get it as a dataset. To implement this method, we require Analysis services to run in TABULAR Mode because POWERBI supports Tabular model. First, create a stored procedure of your logic where you want to pass the user name ...

We get the most value from Power Platform when we truly embrace it as a platform . In other words, while the component parts — Power BI, PowerApps, Flow, Common Data Service, and even Dynamics — are incredible tools in their own right, the more we knit them together, the more valuable they become. But how do larger organizations truly adopt that platform at scale? How do we maturely infuse enterprise management, governance, and best practices into our adoption such that we empower our business users to build beautiful and useful things whilst also helping our friends in IT rest easy that the platform is stable and secure? I’ve been incredibly excited this ...

Microsoft Business Applications Summit Recap from Dynamic Communities Dynamic Communities and the Power Platform User Group Team had a wonderful and busy time at the Microsoft Business Applications Summit (MBAS) in Atlanta just over a week ago. It was so great to see and connect with so many faces from the Power Platform user group community. On top of the networking among current leaders and community members, hundreds of attendees stopped by to the booth looking to connect with their local user groups. Many interested in starting up a group near them if one did not exist. Because of this, there will be many new user groups created in the coming months ...

Congratulations to Power BI User Group Leader @Tom Gough and the West Midland PUG   for winning the May Leader Challenge.  We talked with the group’s leadership to learn more about the local Power BI User Group and plans for 2019.  ​ What has been the most exciting thing for your PUG so far? I think the most exciting thing so far was getting the first meeting up and running.  We had about 15 attendees which, while not huge, felt like a massive group when we were just starting out, and getting the support of the Wesleyan to host the event for us was amazing (the Wesleyan are a very well known company here in Birmingham with a history going back ...

Have you heard of a Power BI SIG.. as in a special interest group? If your answer is No, that's OK. You're not alone. Power BI SIGs or Special Interest User Groups , are the hidden gems of the PUG community. Why? Because all you have to do is have an internet connection and a laptop, and you can have the full benefits of a community online, with 100's of others with similar interest across the world. Unlike the popular Power BI user groups, SIGs are very focused on a specific type of user, line of business or skillset. As one of the leaders for Power BI for Business User SIG, our focus is to help business users focus on how to really ask ...

Two years ago my colleague Dave Ruijter ( t | in ) started the Power BI Cheat Sheet. First, it was a giveaway for participants of our classroom Power BI training with a summary of the tips and tricks we shared during the training. Not long after that, Dave decided to make it publicly available! Besides our tips and tricks, it also became community driven which results in a lot of input from the community via social media nowadays. Over a year ago, I ( t | in ) joined Macaw and started to help Dave with keeping the Cheat Sheet up-to-date, which is actually kind of a hard job with the fast release cycle of Power BI. The Power BI Cheat Sheet is a one-page ...
