Community Summit Barcelona 2020 Zebra BI

Zebra BI goes to Community Summit Barcelona 2020 – Come and meet us!

We are privileged and excited to announce that we'll be present at the Community Summit Europe in Barcelona, between March 9-12.

Joining a vibrant community for 3+ days of total immersion to share real learnings, actionable practices, and valuable lessons, delivered by the experts in the industry!

Community Summit 2020 is the largest Microsoft Business Applications conference in Europe where you experience it all at one place and time.


Zebra BI's CEO Andrej Lapajne will once again hold a very practical session titled "7 Best Practices in Power BI Dashboard Design", loaded with tricks & tips that will help you learn how to avoid the 7 most common Power BI dashboard mistakes and ensure you deliver dashboards that are understandable and above all... actionable! Attending his session will clearly give you the answers on the spot, to 4 essentials questions every dashboard brings up:

  1. “Is my performance good or bad?"
  2. "How good/how bad?"
  3. "Why?"
  4. "What shall we do about it?"

Quite often the dashboards fail to answer these essential questions, due to wrong chart types, confusing page layouts, poor labeling, lack of comparisons/variances, counter-intuitive interaction design, no consistency in using colors, poor information density and similar issues. Would you like to walk away with a handful of great new knowledge and at the same time level-up your dashboard creation skills? Then you really shouldn't miss out on this opportunity!

Another great reason to meet us this time around is our new COO Jaka Stele (ex-Microsoft executive) who will be present at the speaker session and for the full 2 days on the Conference's halls, available for all strategic questions about Zebra BI and its whereabouts.

We are privileged and excited to announce that we'll be present at the Microsoft Business Applications Summit in Atlanta, GA., between June 10-11.

Joining a vibrant community for 2+ days of total immersion to drive better data, stronger solutions, and bigger transformation.

This great event is covering all things Dynamics 365, Power BI, Excel, PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, mixed reality, and more under one roof.


Our CEO Andrej Lapajne will lead a 20-minute session called "Building spectacular Power BI dashboards with P&L visuals and small multiples" on one of the biggest events this year!

 

He will demonstrate how to build advanced Power BI dashboards by using popular data visualization techniques like the small multiples, sales vs. budget charts and the IBCS® semantic notation.

While doing so he will be taking on the challenge of presenting user-friendly income statements (P&L) in Power BI. In that same session, he’ll take advantage of the Zebra BI custom visuals to build a real-life sales and financial dashboard from scratch.

Along the way, he will reveal practical tips&tricks for designing advanced, mobile ready and fully responsive dashboards.

Very much looking forward to seeing all of you there, getting to know you and saying hello to all of our friends, partners, and clients. 😊

Upon beginning your presentation, however, you notice that your report looks similar to the one shown below and might be difficult for people not familiar with the information to properly analyze or understand.
