If you have not signed up for the 24 Hours of PASS-Business Analytics you should be. This is a great chance to hear 12 speakers (they will be repeated in the following 12 hours). Topics are varied from Big Data to Strategy to Collaboration. Most importantly you can’t beat the price to hear speakers like Denny Lee, Peter Meyers, and Stacia Misner to name a few.
I get the privilege of moderating two of the sessions: Session 8: What Is Big Data? by Mark Whitehorn and Session 10: Visualizing Data with Power View by Sean Boon.
Finally, I heard Marc Reguera talk about how Microsoft Finance uses Power View at a different event. If you want to see Power View put into practical use by a business user, I highly recommend you check out his session. I think it is the final piece of the puzzle to join the technology with the business.
I hope you all take the opportunity to join us for this compelling and free event preview to the PASS Business Analytics Conference in Chicago on April 10-12, 2013.
