Synopsis: As the AEC industry strives for more digital efficiencies, one of the key enablers is data. Through this presentation, the attendees in their fields will learn how to structure and present data, one way is exploring PowerBI and how it can help present information and allow teams to learn from it.Learning Objectives: 1. Learning the importance of data capture and structure.
2. Adding PowerBI to your tools list – getting data, query data, visualising.
3. Scaling data capture and analytics across your business.Body: Back by popular demand, this time as a presentation for all those that missed out last year. Come see the latest and greatest in Business Intelligence – There is a lot of hype in regards to digital technologies and innovations in the AEC industry. Some say BIM some say automation and machine learning. Regardless of this, one of the enablers that can help our industry learn is data, and this is where I am very passionate! But what type of data and how can we? This class is to enable the attendees the right knowledge and best practice for data capture, data structure and methods for presenting to the specific audience. With these skills, I hope that the attendees can replicate and scale back in their office. The Attendees explore the potential of data, the first part is teaching users how to structure and query, two methods will be shown, both Excel and PowerBI. In my experience presenting data is the easy part, the difficult part is structuring data. This means that breaking data down to its core. The output of the data will be to use Excel data. Once the data has been structured and queried, we can start loading the data into PowerBI. Going through the methods of data visualisation utilising Visualisations pallets, data association by showing attendees how data can be all interconnected based on the work we have done previously. As a class, I will teach different methods of thinking and helping attendees to realise the benefits. Finally, customising the graphics to suit their needs. This includes branding, colour schemes, sorting, filtering, data association, etc. Microsoft has released PowerBI into the market some time ago and they have allowed free user access, this free version also allows the user to publish to the web and share this across their teams.
