As a Principal Product Manager within the Power BI team and a former Dynamics 365 Black Belt at Microsoft - I've seen firsthand how valuable the data in Dataverse can be for the decision-makers. I've also worked through the challenges that are commonly faced by makers when bringing Power BI to Dataverse or vice versa. I'm passionate about how valuable these two tools are when used together and I'm always excited to share and learn with other makers on the Power Platform.
