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.

Visualization is not Analytics – when people get them confused, they are disappointed in the outcome

Join us on Thursday, March 9th for the next meeting of the Louisville SQL Server and Power BI Users Group! We will meet at the TEK Systmes facility. Meeting information is as follows:

TopicVisualization is not Analytics – when people get them confused, they are disappointed in the outcome

Description:  While clear and accurate representation of data is important, it is not the whole story.  Visualization projects are often undertaken not only to understand what happened, but also to explain what caused it to happen.  And with increasing frequency, visualizations are projected into the future to predict what will happen.  This moves us away from simple visualization and into analysis and prediction.  In this short presentation we’ll cover visualization in both R and Tableau, their relative strengths and weakness for both simple visualization and and for analysis, and when to select one over the other.

Speaker: Stan Siranovich
