The DBA’s Guide to Power BI | Jarid McKenzie

Do you manage large datasets for business to perform their operational needs, but have been tasked with providing analytic datasets? If you’re stuck with what the differences are between these two modes of data usage, this session is for you. We’re going to review what needs to happen to the data in order to make Power BI performant and useful.

About the Group

Whether you have a depth of knowledge in a certain area that you want to share or are looking to branch out and learn new aspects of the Azure stack, this is the group for you.

More than learning, the Azure Analytics User Groups is a great place to find professionals in the industry. For those new to the industry (like students), this user group is the easiest and best way to get a good introduction to Azure.

We will discuss the use and direction of tools such as:

  • Azure SQL
  • Azure Synapse (formerly Azure SQL DW)
  • Azure Analysis Services
  • Data Factory
  • Azure Databricks
  • Azure storage
  • Azure DevOps
  • Power BI

The discussion is not limited to these products and will change over time.
