Power BI as a SSBI Platform: Architecture, Strengths, Shortcomings


Featured Presentation

Power BI as a SSBI Platform: Architecture, Strengths, Shortcomings

Speaker: Melissa Coates, BI Architect BlueGranite

Summary: In this talk we'll look at the 4 architectural options with Power BI: local, SharePoint, O365, and the new Preview. Have you heard of Power BI, some idea of what it's about but don't know the capabilities for each option and how they potentially overlap? If not, this is the session for you. I’ll demo the web portal and the iOS app. We will also try to look at the Excel add-ins depending on what the audience has questions about.

About Melissa: Melissa Coates is a business intelligence developer based in Charlotte, NC. As a BI architect with BlueGranite, she specializes in delivering BI and data warehousing solutions using corporate and self-service BI tools. Formerly a CPA, Melissa is ridiculously proud to be an IT geek and downright giddy to be a SQL Server MVP. When Melissa steps away from the laptop, you can probably find her hanging out with her border collie or digging in the garden. Melissa blogs at
