Omaha Azure User Group Meeting – October 2020 – 1

The first meeting for the month of October 2020 took place Wednesday, October 7th, starting at 6:00 PM CT. It was an online event.

Topic – Monitor your Azure expenditure using PowerBI
In this hour-long session, we will be discussing how you can easily monitor and track expenses in Azure using PowerBI.
We will begin with the process of acquiring the data required to build out a PowerBI dashboard and use an Azure SQL database to act as a cross-reference to keep things simple. We will then design a few charts and graphs and discuss how we can share them as KPI’s and have alerts going out to stakeholders.
Last but not least, we will go over some good housekeeping tips and tricks that can make all this a little easier, to begin with.
