PBI Tools: Source Control & DevOps for Power BI w/ Mathias Thierbach
March 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm CDT
Ever since Microsoft launched Power BI back in 2015, report developers and data modelers have been begging for compatibility between Power BI Desktop and enterprise-grade version control solutions like Azure DevOps and GitHub. Now, just a little over 6 years later, a true solution to this problem is finally available, and the best part is… It's FREE!
“PBI Tools” by Mathias Thierbach is a powerful new application designed to make it possible to develop, publish, and maintain Power BI projects in a CI/CD pipeline that can automatically analyze new commits for bugs and anti-patterns, detect conflicts between branches, and deploy approved releases to production. PBI Tools is truly a game-changer for Power BI professionals, and we're very excited to show you how it works, so you can start using it to level-up Power BI development at your own organization.

In 2015, after having spent over ten years as a Software Developer and Architect with Microsoft technologies, Mathias Thierbach moved into the Microsoft BI space. He soon landed on Power BI, but also realized quickly that the development and engineering tools and practices were nothing like the ones well established in software development. This is how pbi-tools started as a project, filling this gap in tooling. Today, leading a growing data management team at YouGov, he experiences the benefits of those efforts every day. Having open sourced the project in fall of 2021, Mathias spends a lot of his free time bringing those practices to the wider Power BI community now.
