We’ve just finished another round of Power BI Challenge, and we’re pleasantly surprised by the turnout. The results of this round has been astounding, and it just goes to show that learning from watching YouTube tutorials and enrolling in courses are simply not enough; you really have to dig in and do the hard work.
Learning a new skill is more effective when you immerse yourself in it, and the Power BI Challenges is an effective platform for this kind of data immersion.

Enterprise DNA Challenge 22 Brief
For Power BI Challenge 22, we worked on hotel revenue management. Hotel analytics helps hoteliers make better use of their data, and plays an important role to a successful revenue management strategy.
Through this type of report analysis, hoteliers can optimize their room availability, refine pricing tactics, and understand their customers better.
For this particular challenge, report developers were asked to prepare a deep-dive analysis report based on a hotel dataset. The challenge started last August 19, 2022 and ended on September 19, 2022.
Learning a new skill like Power BI is more than enough reason to join our challenges, but sometimes you need a little extra to keep you motivated. There are lots of incentives from joining, such as a chance to be featured in the Enterprise DNA Showcase, where your report can be seen and downloaded by tens of thousands of Power BI users. The challenge winners also get free subscriptions to the Enterprise DNA On-Demand platform, Amazon vouchers, as well as other prizes.
And even if you don’t win, you still get to benefit from joining. You get to learn from the very best in the industry and collaborate with other analysts from around the world. You can also use the challenges to build your portfolio and grow your own network.
Enterprise DNA Challenge 22 Judging
We certainly don’t envy Heather Rowe, Jarrett Moore, and Brian Julius on their task of narrowing down all these excellent entries, but they did such a great job just the same. The winners were determined according to the four pillars of a high-quality Power BI report:
- Data transformation
- Data modeling
- DAX calculations
- Data visualization
