Nov 1 Webinar: Big Data with Power BI, HDInsight, and Datameer

Headshot of article author Charles Sterling

A topic that came up quite often at Ignite is: what’s the best practice for doing Business Intelligence on top of huge datasets? As it turns out, a long time friend, MVP, and one of the original Microsoft Regional Directors, Andrew Brust, actually specializes in this domain.

Andrew readily agreed to cover this topic in a webinar on November 1. Thanks, Andrew!

Big Data with Power BI, HDInsight and Datameer

Power BI is a fantastic data visualization, transformation, and discovery product, but it’s not designed for “Big Data”-scale datasets. Meanwhile, Azure HDInsight is an impressive cloud-based Hadoop and Spark distribution that works at scale, but it isn’t designed to be friendly for business users the way Power BI is. In this webinar, Andrew Brust will show how you can leverage the scale of HDInsight and the ease-of use of Power BI with Datameer, part of the Azure HDInsight Application Platform. If you’re a Power BI fan, and you want to do Big Data analytics without learning the ins and outs of Hadoop and Spark, then don’t miss this webinar.
