WHAT IS DIFINITY Power BI DayPower BI Conference
Difinity is the largest Microsoft Data, AI, Power BI, Power Platform and Business Applications Conference in New Zealand focusing on Data Platform, AI, Business Intelligence, Business Applications, Power Platform, and Analytics. IT Decision Makers, Developers, Business Analysts, IT Professionals, BI Managers, BI Professionals, Database Administrators, Architects, Digital & Big Data business leaders, and Consultants will gather for three consecutive days of learning.
Difinity Power BI Day is a shorter and smaller version of this conference focused only on the Microsoft Power BI topic. There will be two tracks of sessions all in one day from morning to evening. 12 sessions in the day. The event is held in-person in three cities in December 2020 with the COVID-19 considerations.
Like many of you, we have been doing a lot of events online through Teams and Zoom meetings. This event is a chance for us to get together in a safe environment.

Cloud technologies have provided many benefits to Data Warehouses. It is easy to scale out workloads in Azure Data Factory v2 and store large amounts of data in Azure Data Lake. With Polybase we are able to make data available to the relational layer from the Lake using external tables. This session will cover how we use Microsoft Master Data Services; the Azure Data Lake; Azure Data Factory v2 and Azure Synapse (SQL Data Warehouse) in our Data Platform at Farmlands Cooperative Society to supply data to our Power BI reports.
