The Microsoft Data Insights Summit is the event for business analysts to get answers, explore tools, and talk shop with the experts on Excel and Power BI.
The Summit takes place in Bellevue, WA on March 22-23.
The keynote presenter will be Nate Silver, whose book The Signal and The Noise: Why Most Predictions Fail — But Some Don't is a New York Times bestseller. Nate is pioneering the new field of data journalism with his award-winning website FiveThirtyEight. Recently relaunched in partnership with ESPN, FiveThirtyEight explores a wide range of areas, including politics, sports, science, and more.
The two-day Summit is designed for business analysts to discover best practices, tools, and new ways to get things done, and to connect with each another and with industry experts. It will include a few introductory data science talks as well. (For seasoned data scientists amongst you, you could instead check out the recordings of the recent Cortana Analytics Workshop and also plan to attend our 2016 Cortana Analytics Workshop, which will be in late August in Redmond.)
