Chasing Data Revolution Banner

It seems like every month there are so many new features added in Power BI. The Power Platform is continuously building steam. There are releases, classes, tutorials, new features, blog posts, YouTube video’s, LinkedIn articles. Everywhere you look there’s more and more information on all of these amazing tools Microsoft is creating to help us to expand our capabilities. It could be a full-time job just trying to keep up with all of this stuff much less figuring out how to apply it to your specific type of data or how to transform that knowledge into something you can use to grow your career. Should you even try? What is the benefit of keeping current in this landscape that is growing so rapidly and (not to be too opportunistic but….) how do we capitalize on it to make it work for us so that we can see a return on all of this hard work?

In addition, how do we gauge our growth when the landscape keeps changing? What are the benchmarks? There used to be these awesome graphics for both PowerPivot and PowerQuery where you could look and kind of gauge where you were on the learning path. I wonder if those graphics would look the same today? Where are we going? I remember reading the words “The data revolution lays not in the hands of an elite few, but in YOUR hands, and we want to help you seize that opportunity.” Just reading that sentence was so empowering. To feel like all of this stuff, all of the reports, all of the pushing the limits of learning and testing and breaking was leading to someplace. It was amazing…it was like the Promised Land.

So P3 Nation this is where I would like to begin a dialogue with you to see what you would like to see more of here. How can we bring the data revolution to your hands? What content would you like to see more of? Less of? Do you have an application, technique, or story to share? Any feedback you share will help us enrich the content that we provide here to help this community continue to thrive and grow. The return on the pursuit of continuous learning is in the innovation and application of these many techniques in such diverse environments. Thank you all so much for continuing to share your brilliance with us and please continue to invest in yourselves!
