Self-service BI as a two-edged sword

Self-service BI tools are sometimes described as a two edged sword. SSBI is a powerful tool for solving common problems at scale, but it can also introduce new challenges as more users are empowered to work with more data. There is no one "right" or "best" way to deliver managed self-service capabilities, but there are common patterns and approaches that successful teams apply.

In this session, Matthew Roche from the Power BI CAT team will present patterns and practices learned from from conversations with over 100 global enterprise organizations. If you're already struggling with challenges from self-service BI, if you're tasked with establishing a BI center of excellence and don't want to reinvent the wheel, or if you just want to a head start to understand the road ahead, join Matthew to learn from those who have gone down that road before you.

The target audience is IT and business stakeholders who are trying to balance centralized enterprise BI and flexible self-service BI in large or large-ish organizations.

Pro tip: Two-edged swords are the best type of sword.
