Louisville SQL Server and Power BI User Group

Welcome to the Louisville SQL Server & Power BI Users Group!

Our group is generally made up of folks that hail from the Derby City and surrounding Ohio River Valley area, who all have a passion for Microsoft SQL Server and the technologies that surround it. 

We are a diverse group with skills ranging from "accidental DBA's" to senior administrators, seasoned developers to big data analysts and all of the other backgrounds that fall in between.

Do you love to learn? 

Do you love sharing what you know about the complex challenges of working with SQL Server?

Then come join us, and make yourself at home.

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.
