"Don’t worry about people stealing an idea. If it’s original, you will have to ram it down their throats.” Howard Aiken, Founder of Harvard’s Computing Science Program.

Data is moving so fast these days, and there is a shift whereby people are paying for value, not technology. This is where cloud computing comes in: it is very empowering, because anyone with an internet connection can access it. With Power BI in the cloud, small businesses are liberated with the ability to use the same tools and techniques to explore ideas as larger organisations.

In this session, we will look at understanding the Power BI components and tools available in the cloud, including the Power BI Admin Center, Power Query, Power Pivot, Power View and Power Map. We will look at how to use them will accelerate ideas and help to clarify decisions, and related to this, discuss the roles within IT and the business in relation to these tools. We will also look at business puzzles versus business mysteries, a definition evoked by Malcolm Gladwell (Blink, Outliers) in relation to Power BI.

“Out there in some garage is an entrepreneur who’s forging a bullet with your company’s name on it,” said Gary Hamel, a management guru. With Power BI, let’s see how you can translate your ideas in to a message that people can see, using cloud as an empowerment tool.
