Industry Accelerators and Power BI Dataflows: Join this month’s community call

Join our monthly Business Applications Community call on December 11 to learn more about the Microsoft Industry Accelerators and Power BI Dataflows.

Dynamics 365 announced the Microsoft Power Platform, a connected app platform that unifies access to your data to enable ISVs, SIs, Partners, and Customers to build intelligent, data-driven, task-focused business and analytic applications. Microsoft is focused on enabling a data culture in which the Microsoft Power Platform acts as the glue across Microsoft Dynamics 365 (CE, F&O, Talent), Office 365 (SharePoint, Teams), Power BI, Power Apps, Microsoft Flow, Azure, and other third-party, on-premises and cloud-based solutions.

With the Power Platform providing a unified approach to building data driven solutions, the team is taking it one step further by introducing Industry Solution Accelerators. The accelerators are industry-focused foundational components that enable ISVs and other solution providers with a way to build solutions based on industry standards, supported and driven by Microsoft.

Guest presenters Sonal Bordia and Tamas Zsolt Polner will provide an overview of the Microsoft Industry Accelerators and the Common Data Model. They’ll explain how the Power BI dataflows help business analysts ingest, transform, integrate, and enrich big data using the Power Query experience already familiar to Power BI Desktop and Excel users.

With dataflows, we’re fueling collaboration between Power BI users, data engineers and data scientists by allowing them to seamlessly operate on data stored in Azure Data Lake Storage. Come to learn how to easily prep your data, leverage Microsoft’s standardized schema the Common Data Model, improve time-to-value, eliminate data silos, and create one source of truth for your organizational insights with a demo of Power BI Dataflows.

These capabilities combine to create a unique opportunity for partners to build on top of the platform and accelerators to create unique customer solutions. Here is a view of these opportunities:
