Value Proposition Design: Canvas by May Alhajri

Value Proposition Design helps you tackle the core challenge of every business — creating compelling products and services customers want to buy. This highly practical book, paired with its online companion, will teach you the processes and tools you need to create products that sell. Using the same stunning visual format as the authors’ global bestseller, Business Model Generation, this sequel explains how to use the “Value Proposition Canvas” to design, test, create, and manage products and services customers actually want.

Power BI Tiles & Reports in Power Apps | Inventory Management Solution by Reza Dorrani

This session will explore the Power BI Tile control in Power Apps to bring specific Visuals from Power BI Dashboards into Power Apps. We will also look at a *new feature* on how to bring the entire Power BI Report in Power Apps.

This session will demonstrate PowerApps Power BI Integration with Dynamic filtering. We will apply dynamic filtering of Power BI data inside Power Apps & also apply multiple filters. I showcase my Inventory Management Power App Solution I built using multiple Microsoft 365 services – Power Apps, Power BI, Microsoft Visio & Microsoft Dataverse. The solution leverages a Power BI report which has visualizations showcasing information of the storage facility where the inventory is maintained. Microsoft Visio Visual in Power BI has a diagram of the Storage Facility space, which allows users to look at the Spaces available. The Visio shapes have their color property change dynamically depending upon available space per Container. The Power App allows us to check in and check out inventory data into the specific containers / spaces.

May’s own words: Don’t think inside the box and don’t think outside the box…Don’t even know where the box is. You can’t force creatives into a box. If you try, they’ll no longer be creative. And no one will want your box.
Digital world is my place.
