A year ago Microsoft unveiled the new Power BI platform consisting of the cloud service, Power BI Desktop, and Power BI Mobile. Since then, Prologika has helped organizations of all sizes to plan and adopt Power BI. Packed with features, Power BI supports a dizzying variety of features and integration scenarios but it might be difficult to understand how Power BI fits in your data analytics ecosystem.

Join Prologika and Microsoft for a 3-hour free seminar on Wednesday, August 31th, 8:30 AM -12 PM ET, at the Microsoft Office in Alpharetta, when Teo Lachev (CEO of Prologika) and Brian Jackson (Cloud Solution Architect at Microsoft) share practical knowledge and experience to help you to formulate a Power BI enterprise strategy. If you’re considering Power BI but you’re not sure how it fits within your organizational data strategy, this event is for you.

    Mr. Lachev,
    Enjoyed the presentation on 08/31… thank you for hosting! I’ve had a chance to work with Power BI Desktop for the last several months and regarding your discussion about the ‘Power Query’ (‘M’ language) editor, there are 2 advantages I’ve found (so far) with the Power BI editor vs. the Excel editor:
    1. You can rename a query without breaking your measures.
    2. You can save a file without exiting/applying the query.
    Once again, thank you and I will do my best to attend the September 26th meeting.
    Kind regards,
    Danny Dennison

      Hi Danny,
      Thanks for coming up and for the feedback! Excel has its strengths too, such as task automation, such as model refresh with VBA, and of course, ability to use pivot reports.

        Of course, Excel is a more powerful tool, but my comments were directed toward the query editor…
