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.

Feedback form is now closed.
An increasing number of my clients are leveraging data from sensors that give them a greater insight to what is happening or needs to happen in their organisations. This could be from wind speed and temperature from weather stations, flow rates and levels from rivers or foot falls from a retail outlet. Many of these solutions are provided by third parties who make the information available in proprietary dashboards.
But what if you want to use (almost) real time information in Power BI alongside other business information or analyse current information against historical trends?
Third party information is often available via an API call, which is great if you have the ability inhouse to utilise it programmatically. However, if you do not have the developers to do that then utilising Azure services and Power BI provides a solution.
