Blog Reboot with Data Insight Summit 2017


James Philips’ keynote to kick off the 2017 Data Insight Summit in Seattle was nothing less than AMAZING!!

Coming soon to Power BI will be the ability to embed PowerApps within a PowerBI canvas, creating bookmarks which are aware of the filters on which they were set, and the ability to drill to other report while respecting filters.   In addition, they noted that Power BI Premium is now generally available.

There were SO many upcoming items… I am giddy with anticipation… A-MAZ-ING!!


Today’s June Power BI Desktop Update was no slouch either –

  • Data bars for new table & matrix (preview)
  • Markers on line, area, & combo charts
  • Font family setting on Visuals
  • Force zeros to align between the two axes on Combo charts
  • Horizontal Image Slicer
  • Updates which will allow more Accessible Reports

Well done.  Looking forward to working with the June release and getting my hands on the new “toys” coming in the next quarter.

Well, I am off to get ready to present “What does Raspberry Pi have to do with BBQ” on day 2 of summit, will talk more about that tomorrow.  Bye for now..
