Speaking @ SQLBits 2024

Visualizing Data for Non Data Experts - Accessible Reports for ALL

In March 2024, I presented my session “Visualizing data for non-data experts – Making reports accessible to all” at SQLBits. SQLBits is the largest Data Platform conference in Europe. SQLBits is not only about learning new skills and technologies related to SQL Server, Azure, Big Data, Power BI, Machine Learning, and more. It is also about meeting great people, some of whom I have only met online until now.

Session I presented: Visualizing data for non-data experts – Making reports accessible to all.

Where & When: Saturday 23th of March, Farnborough (UK)

My SQLBits session - Visualizing Data for Non Data Experts

Creating reports that effectively communicate data insights to non-data experts can be tough! While you as a developer know all ins and outs of Power BI and the data in the report, your audience maybe just got started or are less familiar with interpreting data.

The charts, graphs and tables you provide with the intention to inform, engage and trigger the audience may even have a complete different effect: they confuse and overwhelm your audience.

The session starts with discussing the importance of storytelling and how it can be used to create engaging reports that resonate with the target audience. Then it covers the key principles of effective data visualization, including:

  • Choosing the right chart or graph for the data
  • Simplifying complex data to make it easily digestible
  • Incorporating visual cues to highlight important information
  • Designing for accessibility, including colorblindness and other disabilities

Throughout the session, I provide practical examples and demonstrations of how to create effective data visualizations using Power BI.
