Louisville SQL Server and Power BI User Group

Welcome

Welcome!

Welcome to the Louisville SQL Server Users Group! We represent the SQL Server community in Louisville, the surrounding metropolitan area, and throughout most of Kentucky. As a technical users group, we focus on monthly meetings, but also provide networking, learning opportunities, speaking opportunities, training, and collaboration for SQL Server professionals throughout the Ohio Valley area. Our monthly meetings occur on the second Thursday of each month, either at lunchtime in the downtown Louisville area or in the evening outside downtown. This alternating approach to meeting times and locations allows us to support as many of our users as possible and provides different venue and time options for our meetings and our attendees. We also partner with various volunteer groups to bring special events to the area, such as SQL Saturdays. Those events typically draw large crowds of SQL Server professionals from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, and beyond!

On-Prem Power BI with Pyramid Analytics

Microsoft and Pyramid Analytics, makers of the BI Office data analytics and business intelligence suite, recently announced integration between Power BI and BI Office to provide an on-premise alternative to using the Power BI cloud service.  This integration allows organizations to use Power BI Desktop to design and develop reports and dashboards, then publish that content to an on-premise BI Office server.  During this session, we’ll take a look at the BI Office application from Pyramid Analytics and see how it provides data analytics and business intelligence capabilities on top of the Microsoft BI stack. We’ll then look at the new integration features between Power BI Desktop and BI Office, showing how you can leverage both to build fully integrated, on-premise reports and dashboards using BI Office, Power BI, and even Reporting Services content.
