Session 2 by Rory Neary

A session about Power BI, Power Apps, Forms and Flow


Power BI has come an awful long way since its introduction in the Summer of 2014, but it’s not the only product that’s relatively new to Office 365. In this presentation which is geared towards creating truly ‘actionable BI’, we will take a look at some of the other kids on the block, namely PowerApps, Forms and Flow to see how these fit in with Power BI and the Office 365 stack. During this hands-on session, we will look at how James Bond and MI5 might use Office 365 to identify agents in the field, track them down and…well, you know the rest!
