Log Analytics Using Power BI

  • In-Person @ 1955 W Grove Pkwy (take exit 275) Pleasant Grove, Utah, United States (map)
  • 15:00 - 17:00 Mountain Daylight Time
  • Language: English

This talk will discuss gathering quick insights from application log data and combining it with other sources using Power BI. I take a quick and dirty approach to gathering insights and then move into a more refined system for analyzing the user base using a combination of csv's, SQL databases, Elasticsearch, custom middleware, and ODBC connections. As my experience with SQL and Power BI are limited, this talk will be aimed at data modelers newer to Power BI.

About Keith:
I currently work in Cloud Operations and Site Reliability Engineering for Imagine Learning, Inc. I manage cloud infrastructure in Azure and AWS. My background is in Incident Response Management and Offensive Security (ie. Hacking). I studied Information Technology at BYU with an emphasis on Information Assurance and Security and a minor in Business focusing on Entrepreneurship. I have no formal DBA background, but I have a knack for making data-driven decisions, and so I love playing with data in any form. Power BI is my weapon of choice for self-serve BI.
