Session Abstract

Power BI is the premier business intelligence tool. R and Python are the top programming languages for data analytics. So, a match was made in heaven when Microsoft decided to add R and Python to Power BI.

How and when you should use R or Python in Power BI is not straightforward. You already have Power Query for data ingestion, and you already have many data visualizations you can easily use. So given that, it is not clear how the R and Python integration can benefit you. I will illustrate how in this talk. I will:

– highlight use cases where it makes sense to use R and Python in Power BI
– best practices you should follow
– resources to learn R and Python
