Power Platform Summit

End-to-end monitoring for a successful Power BI implementation

Implementing Power BI in your organization is more than allowing people to download Power BI desktop and publish reports to the Power BI Service. People have to be aware of what Power BI is able to achieve for them! But how do you know who is creating what? Using what? Or maybe even more important, sharing (confidential) information with others?

With a Power BI end-to-end monitor, you will be able to monitor all Power BI content allover your tenant. These actionable insights will help you to see who needs some extra help, but also in governing your data solutions within your organization.

In this session I will show you which insights you will get with an end-to-end monitor and how you can monitor your own Power BI environment.


Storytelling & Interactive reports with Power BI bookmarks & drillthrough

How to make sure that the end-user of your Power BI report understands the information well? There is way more involved in presenting your data then only a chart. Think about interaction, presenting the right information at the right time and much more!

By using Storytelling, it is possible to tell the story behind the data. Where does the information need come from and how did we get to an answer? The complete story-line covered in your reports and dashboards to make sure the data is interpreted in the right way by the users.

During this session I will tell more about the principles of storytelling. In addition, this session will include many Power BI demos. During these demos I will give examples of functionality within Power BI which can be used to create your own story in Power BI. I will not only show the end result, but also how to create a report or dashboard to tell your own story!


Microsoft Power Series: Advanced Data Visualization & Storytelling with Power BI Desktop

A fun and interactive sessions which was part of the Microsoft Power Series. Session co-presented with Charles Sterling, Prathy Kamasani and Andrej Lapajne. It was an honor to do this session together with you. A great experience wherefore I couldn’t thank you all enough.

During this session, you will gain a better understanding of the components that influence communicating data visually. Specifically gain familiarity with Power BI report layouts and structure the agile process to creating Power BI data visualizations. Understand the art behind visualizations, implications behind choosing the right charts, the impact of color, shape and size, and finally the use of Power BI custom visuals.

Power BI Gebruikersdag

Use parameters to add extra flexibility to your Power BI content

You’re probably applying a lot of steps over and over again every time you create your Power BI report. A waste of time! Apply parameters on the back-end in Power Query, but also in the front-end in your report to make your solutions much more flexible.

This session will give you examples on where you can use parameters in Power BI and which advantages this will have for you.
