Data is critical for the success of every organization. The Microsoft Power Platform (Power BI, PowerApps and Flow) provides a suite of tools to measure, act and automate processes around data. This foundational session gives you a 360-degree view for how to connect to data from any data source, shape, and size and get it ready to be used within all the Power Platform tools and experiences.


BRK3003 - Microsoft Power BI: Connect and transform data from hundreds of data sources using Power Query

Business users spend a significant amount of their time working on data preparation before the data is ready to be used. Power Query and M are Microsoft’s data connectivity and data preparation technologies integrated across many different products (Excel, Microsoft Power BI, Common Data Service, Microsoft Flow, etc.). They provide a best-in-market experience for importing, reshaping, and combining data from a wide range of data sources, including File sources, Enterprise-grade sources such as SAP HANA/BW, Azure-based sources, and many others. In this session, learn everything you need to know to succeed at leveraging these capabilities and taking your data to the next level. See several demos of new capabilities coming to Power Query over the next few months.
