I'll be presenting on "Developing Performance Point Dashboards " (an intro course) from 2pm - 3pm:
Microsoft offers a Dashboard solution called Performance Point to create stunning visualizations. In this session, you'll see Performance Point Designer, Reports, Score Cards, Key Performance Indicators (KPI) and Filters. And learn why Executives crave Dashboards to find value and insights from their data.
I'll be attending two of the pre-conferences this year.
Everyone should attend this event, to learn, mingle, network and advance your career in SQL Server / Big Data.
