Abstract
Power BI is a Microsoft's new self-service BI platform for both on-premise
and cloud-based data. It enables business Power Users to make the most of
their data by using the new data discovery, analysis and visualisation
features in Excel and Office 365, in an easy to use environment that they
are already familiar with.
In this session we will go through the main features and capabilities of
Power BI using an end-to-end scenario. We will also discuss best practices
and tips along the way that will enable you to get the best out of this new
Microsoft technology.

Feature
Power BI
Tableau
Qlikview
Data Visualisation
Power View is not as rich as
competitors in dashboards
and visual analytics. However,
competitors do not have an
equivalent tool to Power Map
Very strong visual analytics and
dashboards
Similar level to tableau but not
as easy to create dashboards but
are regarded as better quality
than tableau, may require
scripting
Data Modelling
Strong data modelling and
analytics/ easier to use than
competitors
Basic data modelling tools
Does have a data modelling tool
but may require an IT specialist
and is known for taking time to
perfect data model
Combining data
Ease of access to
public/corporate data sources
including tables from the
web, merge and append
Large list of data source support
and feeds
Ease of connection to
proprietary data sources may
struggle with others
ETL
Power Query is easy to use
powerful ETL tool, Q&A
unique to Power BI
Does not have an ETL tool, ETL
needs to be done in a database
or via Excel
Does have an ETL tool but may
not be included in standard
package
