What? Why? Where? Spatial Analysis with Self-service BI

This session explores how data can be spatially represented by using Microsoft self-service BI tools. These tools include Excel by using Power Pivot, Power View, Power Map, and Apps for Office; and, Report Builder.
Theory and demonstrations will commence with the foundational topic of how data can be stored and prepared to deliver secure, fast, complete and accurate spatial analysis. This topic will be followed by demonstrations and discussion of each of the Microsoft self-service BI tools that enable spatial analysis. Discussion of the capabilities and features of each tool will help analysts determine the best fit tool for a specific spatial analysis requirement.
This session will be of interest to business analysts and BI developers.
