The Microsoft BI Professionals - Wisconsin is an official chapter of the Professional Association for SQL Server and is also a recognized Microsoft Power BI User Group. Our objective is to provide a forum for Wisconsin Business Intelligence professionals of all levels to network, ask questions, share knowledge and expertise with other members. We plan to meet quarterly. Meetings are always FREE and food is provided. Details about the next meeting can be found on this page.

In conjunction with our quarterly meetings which cover all areas of the Microsoft BI stack, we will be offering Power BI specific meetings on a monthly basis (when there is no quarterly meeting). Those meetings will be posted here as well and we will keep group members updated via email.

PASS Summit 2016

SEATTLE, WA

OCTOBER 25 - 28, 2016

 

Topic:

How to Design Visually Stunning Reports in Power BI

Description:

Reporting is more than just charts, numbers, and percentages...designing a report is an art form. In this presentation, Miguel Myers will teach you the difference between reports, indicators/gauges, presentations, dashboards, and infographics; including how you can take advantage of each one and how you can design them using Power BI. Miguel will teach you his secrets, such as how using other external tools to understand color, texture, space, balance and saturation can help you to create unique and clean designs.

 

Using colors, shapes, fonts, and images are just 30% of the labor when you create a report. There are other secrets behind the shiny charts and shapes that make your report complete; secrets that even experts don't want to share at all. 

 

Are you ready to design your reports as never before? Please join us April 25th to learn more about data graphic design. Invite your employees, coworkers, bosses, and friends.
