Exploring Database and Performance Metrics with Power BI - Seth Bauer
Abstract: Power BI is a powerful analytics tool. It allows users to easily shape and transform their data into actionable insights in a very short period of time. We’ll explore how the tool can connect to your SQL Server database and allow you to visualize Database and Performance Metrics, such as, file size, Buffer Pool and Plan Cache, Wait Stats and more. We will create visualizations and reports in Power BI Desktop using SQL queries, publish that information to the Power BI Service, and walk through sharing and mobile consumption. The goal of this session is to provide you with a better understanding of how to leverage Power BI for yourself and your organization.
Speaker Bio: Seth Bauer is a Business Intelligence Engineer with Concurrency Inc. He works with clients across the Midwest implementing BI / Power BI solutions. He is a Microsoft Certified Professional, a board member for the Microsoft BI Professionals User Group–WI (MSBIWI), and also the leader of the Microsoft Power BI User Group for Southeastern WI.
