Spoke Power BI in Dallas SQL Saturday BA Edition(http://www.sqlsaturday.com/schedule.aspx).
Before this one, I have spoken/attended more than 5 times SQL Saturday in different places–MSP, Madison, Richmond, WDC and Dallas BI. I was surprised that the quality of sessions and speakers is really high–maybe highest one among those I attended. I did learn a lot from each session I listened to.
here are some thoughts,
1, Cloud Cloud and Cloud… Cloud will be the future for all IT
2, BIG Data, it is no longer a buzzword but also practically we can do something in BIG DATA.
3, En-powering your end users is the way to go for IT. All ad-hoc report tools are ready and easy for Data analysts to quickly pick up.
