5’ve got all the swords

Power BI turns five years old this week. On July 24, 2015 Microsoft announced the general availability of Power BI, a new cloud service for self-service business intelligence.

In the five years since then Power BI has evolved to be much more than a self-service tool. Power BI today includes capabilities for self-service and enterprise BI, adding data preparation, information management, machine learning and more, while still including powerful tools for data visualization and reporting.

Today[1] the Power BI team at Microsoft is commemorating this milestone by saying thank you.

Even though I’m on the Power BI team at Microsoft, this is my personal blog, and I wanted to say thank you as well. So I put together a short video that includes five of my favorite things:

  1. Power BI
  2. Swords
  3. Bad jokes
  4. My awesome new “5’ve got the Power BI” t-shirt
  5. Worse jokes[2]

The one thing I couldn’t include is all of you.

Thanks for the comments and feedback on the blog and the videos, and thanks even more for helping make Power BI what it is today.

 


[1] Yes, I know today is July 23rd here in North America, but by commemorating this milestone today we can be more inclusive for folks in parts of the world where it’s already the weekend.

[2] There is one joke in the video that I suspect I am the only person who will understand enough to laugh at it. If you get it please tell me so I don’t feel so alone.
