Analyzing the #FutureofSharePoint--A Case Study

A session at SPTechCon - San Francisco - 2016

Tuesday 6th December, 2016

4:00pm to 5:15pm (PST)

What happens when 3 geeks with too much time on their hands & a wealth of BI knowledge create something great

It was the Friday before the May 4th Future of SharePoint launch when Jason Himmelstein & John White sat in on a demo of Microsoft Flow that had just released that morning. Being men of action, the intrepid twosome set off on a journey of discovery to see what exactly could be done with the technology. Both being SharePoint focused social media nerds they decided to pull in data from Twitter and begin to work with it in Power BI. Before long they had roped in a fellow BI-nerd, Dave Feldman, as they endeavored to develop a quick tool that would allow them to examine the data from Twitter as it revolved around the #FutureOfSharePoint hashtag and event.

Join Jason, John and Dave as they take you on the journey from ideation to implementation of this real world use of Microsoft Flow, SharePoint Online, Azure SQL Databases, Azure Streaming Analytics, Power BI and Office 365 Groups. From simple list integration to real time viewing of the data you will see the many ways the guys were able to tackle their goal. Along the way you will learn about the design plans they came up with, the pitfalls they encountered, and the successes they found with each of the methods that they set out to work through.

Audience: Developer Essentials, IT Pro Essentials, Business Decision Makers, Power User Essentials
