Summit EMEA 2017: Hands-on & how-to with Power BI, or Power BI + Dynamics NAV

Assistant Editor, MSDW

Steven RendersBelgian Dynamics NAV MVP Steven Renders has a mission for Summit EMEA 2017: Those who attend his four sessions will leave knowing how to get actionable intelligence out of Power BI, or Power BI plus NAV.

Renders is both a Dynamics NAV MVP and a Microsoft Certified Trainer who provides training and consulting services focused on Dynamics NAV, SQL Server, business intelligence, SQL Server Reporting Services, and database performance tuning. He is also the author of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009: Professional Reporting and Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015: Professional Reporting.

He described what attendees can expect from his four sessions, and his thoughts on the strategic value of Power BI to both users and partners.

MSDW: You are a Dynamics NAV MVP, but you'll deliver four sessions on Power BI. How did that happen?
