PUGGN11 - Using Teams to Promote Power BI User Adoption

Wednesday, April 25
13:00 - 14:00
Liffey Meeting Room 5

Format: Presentation
Level: Yes - A
Level: Basic

You love Power BI and see the opportunities it can bring to your organization. Where do you go from here? Learn how you can use Teams to create an internal PUG to promote bottom-up user adoption of Power BI. See how Power BI and Teams can be used together to improve the data culture of a global organization. We'll demonstrate what Teams is and some of the features we've found to be the most useful, including embedded Power BI reports.

Learn from our experience, in which we used Teams to extend our reach, providing a platform for peer-to-peer learning and a community of practice. This session will discuss how a bottom-up approach of building a cadre of Power BI champions (through Teams) has enabled our leaders on the ground to consistently consult Power BI for decision making. Most importantly, we will share how we have used Teams to help our field teams add order to chaos with Power BI, as the majority of data our organization uses is non-standard, non-governed. Because of this, Power BI has revolutionized access, visualization, and decision making for our staff. Teams helped us get there – come see how it can help you too!
