Self-Service Data Preparation with Power BI Dataflows

Microsoft is expanding self-service data prep in Power BI by introducing new capabilities to help business analysts extract insights from their data. Using the Power Query experience familiar to millions of Power BI Desktop and Excel users, analysts can ingest, transform, integrate and enrich data directly in the Power BI web service – including data from a large and growing set of supported on-premises and cloud-based data sources. The ingested data can be shared across multiple Power BI models, reports and dashboards enabling easy data reuse.

In this session Microsoft Senior Program Manager Matthew Roche will dive into this exciting new capability, including an end-to-end demo of self-service data prep in Power BI.
