Overview:

In the spirit of the season, join us to reflect on the state of Microsoft BI Platform at the end of year 2014. I'll revisit its most important tools and their role in a holistic and modern data analytics environment. Then, for each tool, I'll discuss its indented use, as well as pros and cons. We'll discuss self-service and organizational BI, on-premise and cloud, emerging technologies, and how they complement each other in the context of Microsoft BI.
