Using Power BI to Generate Quick Data Visualizations
This will be a brief overview of Power BI, its capabilities and competitors, along with my own opinions on the value of the tool. We will use sample data and a project scenario to build a simple visual in Power BI. Next, I will open the discussion and demonstration to any other situations or aspects of the tools that can be quickly performed.

I have over 20 years of experience in the IT world spanning operations, development, sales, and support. I currently manage the data services team at Travis County, including data integrations and data analytics. I believe using data is important to decision making and incorporating visuals to tell that story can help deliver the message.
