Nashville's Business Intelligence User Group


We've joined the Power BI Community!

We are @Nash_BI.  The Nashville SQL Server User Group has existed for many years, however about a year and a half ago discussions started to vet the idea of starting another Pass user group in the community, this one specifically for Business Intelligence. We are proud to say that this month, Feburary, is the 1 year anniversary of NashBI.

We are extreemly excited to announce this month that we are now part of the Microsoft Power BI Coumminity! Last year alone half of our meetings were dedicated to Power BI and at the rate of speed for change, we see many great presentations in our future.

We have a community page:

If you haven't checked out the Power BI Community pages, you should. There are Q&A forums-now a place to ask and answer questions. Come be apart of the community. By joining the group, you earn a badge. There is a message board and I am sure we'll see other great features as time rolls on.

Don't forget
