Announcing Power BI Pride 2017!!

[ Edited ]

We’re excited to announce that Power BI Pride is here again!


As you know, last year we drove an exciting effort to hear from our valued Power BI community – spanning customers, partners, and employees. We asked for insights on what people loved most about Power BI. We got some great responses that really highlighted their excitement and pride around Power BI. The submissions were showcased on Power BI YouTube channel and some of the stories we’re highlighted at the Microsoft Data Summit 2016. See that spirit in action Power BI Pride 2016


This year, we’re building on the excitement but changing it around a bit. We want to hear specifically about the top 10 features of Power BI that the community has voted on.
