My session are as follows so I hope to see you there!

Breakout Session (60 minutes):
  • Data Visualization with Power View and the Tabular Model (Advanced Analytics and Insights) on Friday at 10am in room Chicago 10
    My Friday session is straight after Dr. Steven Levitt’s Keynote speech, which is in the Ballroom on Level 4 on Friday at 8am. You’ll know Freakonomics, which Dr Levitt co-authored. Now he is going to be a really tough act to follow, but I hope you will enjoy my session all the same!

SQLSentry Sponsored Breakfast 

On Thursday 7am – 7.45am, I’m pleased to be participating in a panel discussion, with a hot breakfast kindly supplied by SQL Sentry. We will be talking Operational Excellence for the Business Intelligence Professional, and it will be a great discussion. I hope to see you there!

What will we be talking about? Here are some thoughts: How do the most difficult BI projects meet tight deadlines, stringent requirements, and tough budgets?  What do the most effective BI and BA teams do differently to ensure that their projects are a success and that their operations run smoothly?  When do the leaders of BI and BA teams choose political interactions instead of technological interactions to ensure that they are successful?

Moderated by former PASS President, Kevin Kline, and featuring a panel composed of the industry’s top BI experts, you’ll find out the answer to all of these questions and more by joining us for this all-discussion panel, of which I’m honoured to be a part.  See you there!
