What You Will Learn During The Next Enterprise DNA Learning Summit – February 2019

by | Power BI

The next learning summit is only a few days away and we already have close to 1000 Power BI users registered for the event.

There is going to be a significant amount to learn about high-quality Power BI development so if you haven’t had a chance to register so far then you still can below

Enterprise DNA Learning Summit, February 2019

This learning summit will be unique in that it will be recordings of the most popular 6 sessions from all prior summits. 

Please note, all the resources and replays from the event will be made available to everyone who registers. These will only be made available before, during and for a few days after the event before they get moved to a members-only section at Enterprise DNA Online.

Ok, so here’s the summary of what I’ll be covering during the live training workshops.

Session 1 – Advanced Model Development

During the very first session of the event, I’ll be completing an intro for the entire event, running through the data and resources we’ll be using and then covering many of the best practice techniques I feel you should follow as you build out your Power BI reports.

Learning Summit August 2018 - Laptop Main

  • Query Editor tips
  • Developing robust data models
  • Intro to time intelligence calculations
  • Trend analysis
  • Ranking Insights

Session 2 – Segmentation Patterns

In the second live session we’ll be covering a variety of segmentation ideas and techniques for Power BI.

During this workshop I plan to show you how you can do just that by isolating some customer data and really drilling into what’s creating our overall results and the performance of the business.

Sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start with this type of work but I plan to go through my thought process here and hopefully many of these tips can move into your own development processes over time.

Laptop 2

  • Segmentation & grouping patterns
  • Advanced modeling techniques
  • Focus on key customer groups
  • Dynamic calculations
  • Table visualization features
  • and others

Session 3 – Financial Reporting Techniques

In this session we’ll be covering a variety of tips for financial reporting in Power BI.

I can’t wait to show you my integrated reporting techniques which will have a lot of real-world application for anyone who’s looking to complete this type of analysis with Power BI.

Financial Reporting Techniques

  • Data model design & setup
  • Advanced financial insight visuals
  • Financial calculations tips
  • Dynamic calculations
  • and others

Session 4 – Financial Reporting Templates

In this session, I will be covering a topic I’ve never reviewed before around financial templates!

There is no other content out there around this type of techniques in Power BI so looking forward to getting your feedback…

Financial Insights

  • Data model design & setup
  • Advanced financial insight visuals
  • Financial calculations tips
  • Integrated reporting techniques
  • Financial reporting templates

Session 5 – Cohort Analysis Introduction

In the 5th session, we’ll be covering a spectacular analytical technique that can be used in many different environments and data scenarios.

Check out what this technique is and what’s involved in getting this into Power BI.

Cohort Analysis

  • What is ‘cohort analysis’?
  • Dive into advanced formula combinations
  • Added value potential from this analysis
  • Master advanced DAX functions & patterns
  • Extend this advanced analytics further

Session 6 – Prediction and Scenario Analysis

Possibly my most preferred analytical type of work in Power BI is to do with prediction. Once you have a quality model designed and built from the ground up, you’ll be amazed at how you can start using some of the techniques you already know to begin predicting and forecasting what might happen in the future.

You’ll also be quite intrigued around how you can do all the work you need in Power BI using DAX, rather than some complicated analytical language used by many data scientists.

I’m going to show you the setup you require, the formula you need to implement and the visualizations you can use to make consumers of this type of analysis really go ‘wow, that is amazing’.

Prediction and Scenario Analysis

  • What-if scenarios
  • Forecasting analysis
  • Combining multiple DAX formulas
  • Visualizing future results
  • Advanced analytical techniques

This will be it. 6 detailed workshops on a range of Power BI topics.

Anyone using Power BI will benefit immensely from these encore training sessions so I hope you can come along and learn how I work in Power BI on a daily basis.
