Power BI for Office 365: Self-Service BI Webinar Recap

Yesterday, we hosted a webinar on Power BI for Office 365: Using SharePoint Online to Deliver Self-Service Business Intelligence. During the well attended session, Andy Tegethoff, Microsoft BI architect at Perficient, first reviewed what Power BI is all about, who is likely to be a user, and the components of it. He then dug deeper into Excel self-service BI, explaining and walking through Power Query, Power Pivot, Power View and Power Map.
Next, Andy went into Power BI with Office 365, which includes Power BI Sites (an app in SharePoint Online), Data Management, and Power BI for Mobile (currently available in the Windows Store for Windows 8 and 8.1 devices). He also gave a detailed walkthrough here, illustrating the features. Lastly, he discussed IT management for Power BI.
In closing, Andy provided several helpful links to get started with Power BI:

The attendees asked many great questions, and Andy had time to answer a large portion of them. You can view the webinar replay here, including the Q&A.

Also mentioned during the webinar, Andy recently authored a white paper, The Possibilities of Cloud BI with Windows Azure. Andy collected a wealth of information that was out there and put it into a guide, forming a coherent picture of the current possibilities for BI in Windows Azure.

Thanks to everyone who braved the winter storm that blanketed the Southeast to join, including Andy, our speaker! If you’d like to learn more about Office 365, join us on Thursday, February 27, at 1 p.m. CST for the webinar, Best Practices When Migrating to Office 365.
