NTSSUG JUNE 2019 MEETING: Design Techniques for Improving Power BI Visualizations





Design Techniques for Improving Power BI Visualizations

Abstract:   Power BI visualizations are designed to provide complex information in a method that users can readily understand. Knowing how and where to position visualizations will help people assimilate the information better, but that can be tricky. Effective design requires a lot more than just knowing how to model data or put some graphs on a dashboard, and there are techniques you can learn to improve your visualizations. In this session you'll learn design principals to improve your reports and demo how to implement this knowledge by demonstrating how to improve an existing report.

You will learn: 

  • The design principals that incorporate the visual processing cues in the brain to provide the most understandable visualizations   
  • The best design principals sourced from leaders in the data visualization field that best apply to Power BI Reports and dashboards 
  • How to implement design-theory techniques from conceptual to improving Power BI reports and dashboards
