DAT20: Understanding data through visualization

Date: 31 Jan 2019
Location: Milano, Italy
Event name: Microsoft Ignite | The Tour
Duration: 60 minutes


At Tailwind Traders we need to analyze massive amounts of data with agile data visualizations tools in order to discover patterns that might not be immediately recognizable. By connecting PowerBI to our data storage we were successfully able to build dashboards, interactive reports, charts, graphs, and other visuals that helped us unlock key business insight quickly and effectively. In this session we will show you how to use PowerBI and D3.js (an open source data visualization library) to bring data to life, making you the master storyteller of the insights hidden within your numbers and publish interactive data visualization projects on the web. You will learn how visualization can be used for demonstrating performance, communicating trends, understanding the impact of new strategies, showing relationships, and beyond.
