It is almost that time of year again for KTL Solutions to host its annual Mid-Atlantic Technology User Conference, “Empower the User”. This will be our eleventh annual user conference and it will be held on May 19, 2016, at the Microsoft Center in Reston, Virginia.

Power Pivot and Query are used for data preparation while power view and map are used for data visualization. These tools can take large amounts of data from virtually any system and harness it for real-time, powerful analytics. One of the huge differentiators of Power BI from other analytics tools is that you can combine resources from multiple data centers.

However, this is not always the only factor, especially in today’s world that is driven by technology and social media.
