Today we’re excited and humbled to receive the 2017 Esri Partner Conference (EPC) – New Technology Integration award for taking map visualization and geo-analytics to the next level by integrating ArcGIS in a new or innovative way. This award from Esri is one additional validation of the work the Power BI team is doing in a partner-centric way, making Power BI a great place for partners to showcase their unique value. From everyone on the Power BI team, we’d like to thank Esri for this recognition and say a big thank you to the dedicated team that spans Microsoft and Esri working to infuse breath into our shared vision of bringing GIS to every business user. If you’re already a fan or curious to learn more, I would like to invite you to join us in Seattle this June for the second annual Microsoft Data Insights Summit.
