Welcome to the CBIG site!

The Charlotte BI Group, or CBIG as we like to call ourselves, is a technical user group focused on Business Intelligence topics.  

As a member, you will learn about Business Intelligence best practices, recommended architectures, design patterns, development platforms and techniques, as well as administration and configuration topics with an emphasis on the Microsoft BI stack and related toolsets.  From time to time we'll also cover other important BI skills such as business analysis, requirements gathering methodologies, usability, and testing. 

Our meetings will approach learning in a casual, fun and social way.  You'll be given opportunities to get to know fellow BI, SQL Server, and Analyst professionals in the area.  We'll also do our best to keep you informed about regional events & happenings in the technical community.

Be sure to visit the Join CBIG page to receive invitations to monthly CBIG meetings and special events!

Dec 6, 2016: Effectively Deploying Power BI

5:30 pm:  Dinner and networking with fellow CBIG members 

6:00 pm:  Introduction & Spotlight Sponsor 

6:15 pm:  Main Presentation : Effectively Deploying Power BI

Abstract: It is generally a mistake to think that simply buying a license and handing it off to users will be enough to enable Self Service BI.    Companies are discovering that planning Power BI rollouts are important to realize the expected value.   This session will provide an overview of the different roles Power BI can play at an organization, how should teams use it and  how to foster and measure adoption.

Presenter: Javier Guillen is a Principal for BlueGranite.  As an active blogger, speaker, and Microsoft community contributor, Javier is particularly interested in SQL Server Analysis Services technology, including Multidimensional and Tabular models, as well as the practical application of MDX and DAX patterns.

Location:  Microsoft Campus - 8050 Microsoft Way Charlotte, NC 28273 - View Map
