March 10, 2015 Meeting

Topic:Power Query: Users and ETL Developers Hug Day

Abstract:

Due to its complexity and rigid development cycles, traditional ETL processes are a costly element of information-centric solutions. In many cases, end users grow in frustration as they are forced to wait for IT teams they know are "too slow" and processes that "miss the mark." Meanwhile, IT is battling what they perceive as an "unreasonable" number of requests coming from business users. IT and business don't look each other in the eye anymore.

This session will help address those concerns. You will learn how Power Query can be easily used to empower business users when discovering, combining, refining and publishing data while allowing IT to leverage self-service tools that fit in their overall architecture portfolio. We will use Power Query to show how business users can solve complex data integration challenges that traditionally rely on IT driven technologies in a way that is intuitive and effective. As a bonus, you may get a free hug from a developer or an end user.
