Over the past few weeks, FTS Data & AI have had the privilege of hosting multiple Microsoft-sponsored Power BI: Dashboard In A Day (DIAD) events across Sydney. As a Microsoft Gold Partner for Data Analytics, the team presented over 3 days’ worth of content to a combined audience of over 100 business analysts, report developers and data professionals. Handpicked to present at Microsoft’s headquarters in North Ryde, we were able to deliver events that were both informative and beneficial for all those in attendance. For those who are curious and could not attend, this blog post covers what a DIAD event is, and why you should register to attend the next one.

DIAD is a free one-day course designed by Microsoft to help analysts explore the full capabilities of Power BI. Attendees learn about Power BI in detail, follow a step-by-step lab manual, attempt 2 real-world practical examples and receive expert guidance from a team of experienced instructors. Through self-paced learning, attendees can properly develop their skills in Power BI and create a business-ready dashboard in a matter of hours.
Most importantly though, a large section of the day is devoted to providing attendees with the opportunity to develop Power BI reporting from their own datasets. This is where attendees get the most value, as they can ask questions and get assistance from experienced consultants regarding their own business’s reporting projects. The FTS Data & AI team were able to lend a hand and provide tailored advice to a vast number of businesses at various stages of their Power BI reporting journey.
