Access Apps for Business Users with PowerBI on Office 365

A session at SharePoint Fest - D.C. 2015

Friday 10th April, 2015

11:20am to 12:30pm (EST)

Microsoft may be taking away InfoPath - but Access is moving to the forefront for user-created no-code solutions on SharePoint and now Office 365 with Service Pack 1. Learn how! You'll see how to create your first SharePoint app in one minute and how to import your existing data to create a custom app. Finally, we'll go behind the scenes to show you the SQL Azure database and how to transform a plain vanilla Excel file into a cloud hosted interactive app, with stunning data visualizations and natural language queries in Power BI.
