Featured Presentation:

What is new in Power BI for the DBA?

Charles Sterling, PM Microsoft

With Microsoft releasing new Business Intelligence updates monthly (and sometimes weekly), there are a lot of fantastic features to keep track of. In this session, Charles Sterling does a walkthrough and demo of what's just been released, and a look at what the teams are working on for future releases. Drill-down topics include how to use Microsoft BI to track and manage your database infrastructure; using new collaboration features in the cloud-based business analytics service; the new authoring and modeling features of Power BI Desktop; scaling your BI with Analysis Services; extending your reach to mobile applications; new Power BI resources; and, finally, what's new for developers leveraging the Power BI platform.

About Charles:

He started out at Microsoft supporting Excel and moved through a couple of support teams to being an escalation engineer for Microsoft SQL Server. Taking his love for customers (and diving), Chuck moved to Australia as a product manager and developer evangelist for the .NET Framework. In 2008 he moved back to Redmond as a Visual Studio community program manager and just recently moved to the Power BI team to continue his community passion and looking after the Power BI influencers and MVPs.
