Power View: Analysis and Visualization for Your Application’s Data

  1. 1. Power View: Analysis and Visualization for Your Application’s Data Andrew J. Brust Founder and CEO Level: Intermediate
  2. 2. Meet Andrew • CEO and Founder, Blue Badge Insights • Big Data blogger for ZDNet • Microsoft Regional Director, MVP • Co-chair VSLive! and 17 years as a speaker • Founder, Microsoft BI User Group of NYC – http://www.msbinyc.com • Co-moderator, NYC .NET Developers Group – http://www.nycdotnetdev.com • “Redmond Review” columnist for Visual Studio Magazine and Redmond Developer News • brustblog.com, Twitter: @andrewbrust
  3. 3. My New Blog (bit.ly/bigondata)
  4. 4. Read All About It!
  5. 5. Agenda• Intro• Basic Use• Data Acquisition• Filtering• Advanced Visualizations• Advanced Features
  6. 6. What is Power View?• Ad hoc reporting. Really!• Analysis, data exploration• Data Visualization• In Silverlight, in the browser, in SharePoint• Feels a little like Excel BI• Is actually based on SSRS – Power View makes a special RDL file
  7. 7. How Do You Get It?• It will ship with SQL Server 2012, BI and Enterprise Editions• It will require SharePoint 2010 and the SharePoint Enterprise Client Access License (eCAL)• It will work against data in BI Semantic Models (BISMs): – PowerPivot (on SharePoint) – “Tabular” mode of SQL Server Analysis Services in SQL Server 2012
  8. 8. In the browser,Power View! in Silverlight Ribbon, like Excel Variety of visualizations and data formats Field list, like Excel Data regions pane, like Excel
  9. 9. View Modes Maximize one chart, fit report to window, put whole report in Reading Mode or Full Screen Create multiple pages (views)
  10. 10. Power View Basics
  11. 11. BISM: A Column-Oriented Store• Imagine, instead of: Employee ID Age Income 1 43 90000 2 38 100000 3 35 100000• You have: Employee ID 1 2 3 Age 43 38 35 Income 90000 100000 100000• Perf: values you wish to aggregate are adjacent• Efficiency: great compression from identical or nearly- identical values in proximity• Fast aggregation and high compression means huge volumes of data can be stored and processed, in RAM
  12. 12. Data Import• Relational databases – SQL Server (including SQL Azure!), Access – Oracle, DB2, Sybase, Informix – Teradata – “Others” (OLE DB, including OLE DB provider for ODBC)• OData feeds, incl. R2/Denali Reporting Services, SharePoint 2010 lists, Azure DataMarket, ADO.NET Data Services (Astoria)• Excel via clipboard, linked tables• Filter, preview, friendly names for tables/columns
  13. 13. DirectQuery Mode• In DQ mode, model defines schema, but is not used for data• Queries issued directly against source• Similar to ROLAP storage for conventional SSAS cubes
  14. 14. Creating a SharePoint Power ViewData Source• To repeat: Power View works only against PowerPivot/SSAS tabular models – DirectQuery mode supported, however• For PowerPivot, click “Create Power View Report” button or option on workbook in SharePoint report gallery• For SSAS tabular model, create BISM data source, then click its “Create Power View Report” button or option – BISM data sources can point to PowerPivot workbooks too, if you want.
  15. 15. Power View DataAcquisition
  16. 16. Constraining Your Data InPower View• Tiles – A filtering mechanism within a visualization• Highlighting – Selection in one visualization affects the others• Slicers – Similar to Excel against PowerPivot• True Filters – Checked drop-down list; very Excel-like – Right-hand filter pane, similar to SSRS and Excel Services
  17. 17. Power View Filtering
  18. 18. Multipliers• Multiple charts within a chart, in columns, rows, or a matrix – Horizontal and vertical multipliers• Allows for visualizing 1 or 2 additional dimensions
  19. 19. Scatter/Bubble Charts• Allow for several measures• Features a “play” axis which can be manipulated through a slider or animated• Excellent way to visualize trends over time
  20. 20. Power View AdvancedVisualizations
  21. 21. Perspectives Default Aggregations Special Advanced ModeBISM Advanced Modeling Reporting properties Hierarchies Hide specific columns and tables Measures KPIs
  22. 22. Reporting Properties• Setting the representative column and image tells Power View how to summarize your data, and show stored images• Other properties tell it about: key attributes, default aggregations and more• These properties were, essentially, created for Power View – Though other clients are free to use them too
  23. 23. Advanced Modelingand Properties
  24. 24. Why Is Power View in SharePoint?• Integration with PowerPivot and Excel Services – Create Power View reports in the same place the data sits, and side-by-side with other analyses• Document security subsystem – Building a new one just for Power View would have delayed the product• SharePoint is the MS BI Presentation Layer – Excel Services – PerformancePoint Services – Reporting Services (SharePoint integration is optional)
  25. 25. Non-SharePoint-DependentAlternatives• Dundas Dashboard• Tableau• .NET data viz components from Telerik, DevExpress, ComponentOne, Infragistics and…• Reporting Services…
  26. 26. Data Visualization in SSRS
  27. 27. Futures• Shown at PASS: HTML 5• Rumored: Windows 8 Metro• One day?: Non-BISM data• Originally planned: Export to PowerPoint• My hope: permission to deploy in non- SharePoint scenarios: – Silverlight or Metro apps – Standalone, hosted on Azure or Office 365 – A free Excel add-in, for desktop use
  28. 28. Summing Up• Power View is Microsoft’s first true ad hoc reporting technology• It’s also the first data BI stack component to make heavy use of XAML• An underlying motivation for the team was to make data exploration fun, and it shows• Power View is part of Microsoft’s BI Renaissance
