Overview:

Performance is critical to User Adoption for Power BI at the enterprise level.  In this session, we will leverage real-world examples to highlight common development pitfalls affecting Power BI model size and visual query performance. You’ll learn to effectively embed Power BI within a website page to alleviate long page load time, and how to tend to specific report requirements from internal stakeholders. We will walk through ways to optimize model performance to enhance user experience and avoid abandonment of Power BI reports. You’ll learn about available tools to diagnose report optimizations, explore beneficial interventions, and see concrete results through real-world use cases.
