Power BI works well with both Teams and Modern SharePoint. You can showcase a particular report or dashboard within a Teams tab or embedded within SharePoint. This session will talk about how these three tools work together. It is designed for participants who are brand new to any of these tools.

Power BI, Teams and SharePoint are all based on Office 365 groups and can be used individually or together. Using them in concert requires care and planning if you want to avoid a governance nightmare. This 1/2 day course will explore the technical underpinnings of Workspaces, SharePoint Sites and Teams. We will look at different administrative options (but be aware that this class is not designed for administrators).
We will explore using SharePoint as a content source for Power BI, and Power BI as a content source for Teams and SharePoint.
Finally, we will discuss questions around the governance of Teams, Workspaces and SharePoint sites. The class is not designed to deliver 'thou shall' and 'thou shall not' principles. Rather, we hope that it will provide a forum for interested users to discuss and think through how to have a working environment that maximizes the strengths of all three tools, while minimizing administrative overhead. 

Understand and administer O365 groups
1. Use SharePoint content in Power BI
2. Use Power BI content in Teams and SharePoint
3. Leverage Teams and Workspaces as a complementary collaborative platform
4. Think through governance issues related to all three applications, as they affect each other

Audience: Power users of SharePoint/Teams and Power BI
Power BI, Teams, or SharePoint administrators
Data governance professionals 

Level: Intermediate

Prerequisites: Having used these three platforms will be helpful for participants as we won't be exploring basic features of these platforms.
