Session Presenters

Microsoft Power BI Team, Power BI Users & Subject Matter Experts

The sessions were very informative with a good blend of technical capabilities and practical use case scenarios. The cross-platform integration allows me to collaborate with users that I would not normally meet with. It's comforting to see that users with varying technical platforms are resolving their analytical reporting in a manner consistent with myself.
