Discover How to Understand Your Business Data at PBIUG Focus

Your GPUG membership includes free member access to the Dynamics Power BI User Group (PBIUG). Learn more. As such, I wanted to make sure you were aware of an upcoming face-to-face Power BI learning opportunity: PBIUG Focus 2017.

A challenge for many companies is understanding your business data and how you can use Power BI to transform, analyze, and visualize this data. To help you learn how to work smarter, not harder, attend our
PBIUG Focus conferenceheld May 10-11, 2017 in St. Louis, MO, for in-person training delivered by industry experts who have 'been there, solved that'. 


Don't just take our word for it! Hear from a PBIUG Member and PBIUG Focus 2016 attendee: "All of the Power BI sessions were incredibly valuable and really helped me to understand the tool even more than I did when I showed up on day one." 

You may be wondering how PBIUG Focus compares to GPUG Amplify. GPUG Amplify 2017 offered one Pre-Conference GPUG Academy class and three 60-minute breakout sessions on Power BI, whereas PBIUG Focus is comprised of 30 deep-dive, 90-minute Power BI sessions concentrating on three specific tracks: Essentials, Technical, and Visual. Content will focus on analyzing your data (from all sources - including Dynamics GP) with Power BI.

But why do I need to learn about Power BI? cropped.png

Power BI is a tool that can be used by any Microsoft Dynamics User. It’s a cloud-based suite of business analytics tools that provide a way of bringing company data to life across organizations and on all types of devices. It helps users organize data visually to create dashboards, spot trends, and produce interactive reports while keeping it all in one place, accessible from anywhere.

Recommended roles: All Business Users, Business Analysts, Director of Operations, HR Managers, IT Administrators, Marketing Directors, Sales Managers
