6:15 pm: Main Presentation - Effectively Deploying Power BI
Abstract: It is generally a mistake to think that simply buying a license and handing it off to users will be enough to enable Self Service BI. Companies are discovering that planning Power BI rollouts are important to realize the expected value. This session will provide an overview of the different roles Power BI can play at an organization, how should teams use it and how to foster and measure adoption.
