Businesses today need to have the ability to analyze, obtain insight from their data, and act rapidly, leveraging BI to improve operational efficiency, and maintain their competitive advantage.
Working in an agile framework to realize continuous delivery of results helps BI teams bring artifacts to end-users in a continuous, rapid flow; but constantly pushing out new content, exponentially increases the risk of errors. Adding structure to our development and deployment processes, can help mitigate this risk by working in a multi-tiered process architecture.
The question now becomes - how do we realize this with self-service BI tool like Power BI?
Possible frameworks include DTAP (Development, Testing, Acceptance, Production) and ALM (Application Lifecycle Management). These multi-tier developing processes are very common in software testing and deployment. However, in an upcoming industry of self-service IT, these processes are sometimes hard to use.
Power BI, which is mostly positioned and advertised by Microsoft as a self-service data analytics tool, does not have a standard integrated capability to apply a multi-tiered architecture for development and deployment.
You will leave this session with:
Luca Gualtieri will kick things off by presenting a multi-tiered development process architecture for Power BI with a scenario built within his Power BI tenant. He will showcase options for version control and demo a deployment automation through Azure DevOps pipelines.
In this session Luca is going to discuss and demo topics including:
The event is powered by the local Vancouver Power BI and Modern Excel User Group, a group of Power BI and Modern Excel enthusiasts. The group is running monthly meetings to share techniques and inspire incredible data analytics and dashboards using Power BI and the Modern Excel tools (Power Pivot and Power Query).
