SharePoint Saturday Utah

SharePoint Saturday Utah has begun with a great crowd. I presented my session “Unlock your Big Data with Analytics and BI on Office 365” which is a Level 200 class. In my session I discuss how companies have huge amounts of data waiting to be explored. With Azure HDInsights (Microsoft’s Hadoop cluster solution in partnership with Nortonworks) you can realize the value of your data. With Microsoft Excel 2013 and Office 365, you have a complete platform for BI solutions and services. PowerPivot, Power View, Power Query, Power Map and Power BI Sites empowers users analyze and make decisions using structured and unstructured data.
Attendee Takeaways:
1. Learn to setup and configure HDInsights on Microsoft Azure.
2. Understand how to use Excel for BI capabilities.
3. Build a BI Dashboard in Office365.
