Drowning in Data? Create BI Dashboards With Software You Already Have
Presented by: Scott Helmers
Are you drowning in data, but don’t know how to extract value, meaning, and decision-making guidance?
Visio may be the surprising answer to this dilemma. You can use Visio to create business intelligence (BI) dashboards that are simple and effective, and that deliver insight within the context of a familiar diagram.
If Visio isn’t enough, Power BI is a free download from Microsoft that is amazingly powerful. And as of fall 2017, it’s integrated with Visio -- you can drag and drop a Visio diagram into a Power BI dashboard to add process or project context to a real-time view of your data.
You will never have less data than you do today. Attend this demo-filled session to learn how to tame your data and gain insight and new awareness by visualizing what is taking place in your organization.
