Delivering BI Continuously

This full-day class is for the BI Developer/IT Professional who has been working far too many late hours on manual deployments gone bad. Focus will be on classic tools in BI such as SSIS, SSAS and Power BI, but we will also cover Powershell, which should be in the tool-belt of any respectable Microsoft Professional these days.

Key Take Aways:

  • Get familiar working w/ a code repository
  • Understand Azure Pipelines
  • Enable testing in your environment
  • Unlock automation for your projects

Plus, attendees will walk away with a fully-fledged, automated deployment pipeline which they have partially build themselves.
