Learn how to get the most from your data — and the Microsoft tools you use every day — at the Microsoft Data Insights Summit, the company’s user conference for business analysts. Now in its second year, the event is packed with strong technical content, hands-on workshops, and a great lineup of speakers. And back by popular demand, you can now book an appointment with a Microsoft expert with our recently launched online Schedule Builder.

  • Ask your toughest questions and share strategies
  • Solve an issue or challenge you’ve faced across a wide range of products, including Microsoft Power BI, SQL Server BI, Excel, PowerApps, and Flow
  • Learn pro-tips from someone who knows the products first-hand — test drive Q&A, find a specific custom visual, work a PivotTable, and much more!

These appointments fill up fast, so schedule yours today. To book, log into the Schedule Builder and click the Ask the Experts tab. Select your date and time, as well as your product and area, and fill in any additional details about what you’d like to discuss.

Powerapps is most certainly not a InfoPath Replacement.   To believe such is complete folly.  When a product doesn't do 50% of what the old one did, it cannot be considered a replacement.   Even the lies built into the product that say a feature exists but really doesn't (see below) will cost you several of hours of engineering and development time, only to find out through lots of googling that the feature really doesn't work.   Save yourself the time and effort use a product that works.  There are lots of other system out there, use one other than this.   Microsoft may be King but with this level of incompentence, its easy to see how they could lose it all.
