Power BI Enterprise Solutions Workshop
April 25 @ 15:00 - 18:00
The purpose of this 3-hour fast-paced workshop is to apply proven, enterprise-scale best practices for Business Intelligence solutions with Power BI. With focus on foundational and iterative model design, CI/CD, future growth, and scalability; the workshop covers data acquisition, query design, data modeling, and visual reporting. Students will learn to develop solutions for scale in an IT or multi-developer setting, this is not a beginner-level class on only visual design; you will see how to design an end-to-end solution.
