Fighting the World

Fighting the world every single day
Fighting the world for the right to play
With the data that I need
I’m fighting for data to make decisions at speed!
Just as Manowar fights the world for heavy metal, each of us faces a daily battle of our own: getting access to the data we need to make better-informed decisions and drive more consistent business outcomes. Of steel.
Do YOU want to fight the world, but don’t know where to start?
In this session, Odin will bestow upon you the one gift all data warriors live in hope of: the runes of self-service data governance. If you dare to stand beside him upon this hallowed battlefield, you will leave this day with the secrets of data discovery, self-service access requests, data lineage and impact analysis, and other often-overlooked data governance and enablement gems in Power BI.
Power BI gives you the weapons you need to fight the world – will you be brave enough to take them up and fight by my side?
