Case Study: Visualizing data in context for a theme park operator

Presentation Description:

The key to successful data visualization is context. A collection of  charts and graphs on a BI dashboard are great, but without context  you’re likely to miss key insights. For example, the red bars on a  hospital’s environmental monitoring dashboard may alert you that a  problem exists, but when you can click the red bars and see the exact  location of the problem on a floor plan, you can formulate an immediate  response. Similarly, when a dashboard includes a network diagram that  shows real-time server status and you can click a failed server to see  the data required to initiate a fix, you’re two steps ahead. How do you  achieve this level of insight? There’s no better way to add context than  to enhance Power BI reports with floor plans, network diagrams, process  maps, or org charts created in Visio. The session will include multiple  Visio/PBI examples from a current customer project.
