Happy November! In Chicago that means the lights are up, and the winter holidays are here. In the spirit of the holidays, I thought I'd give an early gift and review one of my newest favorite custom visuals for Power BI, Dynamic Tooltip by MAQ Software. Although it is very simple in nature and design, I’ve found it to be extremely useful.

Well it is almost that that time of month again! New feature releases from Power BI! I can honestly say this is only one of two reasons I am looking forward to November in Chicago. (Hint: I am not a fan of the cold). I wanted to make sure everyone has looked at the October updates before we get tempted with the November release. There were some awesome features release in October!

Creating an IT budget early in the relocation and construction process enables the Stakeholders to establish rough orders of magnitude on how much everything will cost. These costs are based on initial perceived guiding principles, decisions, and assumptions. When developing a budget, Netrix first has conversations with key Stakeholders to discover and understand your business, the technology leveraged within the workflow on a daily basis, adopted business recovery options, and future plans for the business. These discussions are less focused on business goals and more on what needs to change in order to better support the business operation while confirming the evolving guiding principles.
Well it’s that time of month again, as it were, it’s my favorite time of month. The Power BI monthly feature release!!! [Cheer noise here]. Every month is packed with cool new features and connectors but I think this month had one of my favorites, Drilldown pages! Since I began working with Microsoft Power BI one of my main frustrations has been the inability to provide navigation within a report. With the September release Microsoft has given me a new superpower!
Threats like Ransomware, data breaches and security incidents are on the rise and getting worse. Typically, we have two classifications of issues in security that can occur and go wrong, the first is a security incident, which is something like Ransomware (an advanced and persistent threat). The second scenario is a data breach, in which your sensitive data is exfiltrated or exposed. We often see hackers selling sensitive information on the dark web. While the latter of the two is more severe, both categories of incidences that can occur can be extremely impactful to you and your business.

It's no longer just your laptop or desktop that is connected to the internet. In today's world just about anything can be wired up to the internet and this holds true in the corporate environment just as much as in your home.
IoT, or Internet of Things, is a term used to describe the variety of devices that are internet connected. The interconnection that now exists can be of great use - everything from a lightbulb to a mailbox can be cloud connected and by leveraging internet connectivity, devices are able to provide enhanced functionality. Unfortunately, this also opens up the opportunity for hackers and ill intended organizations to actively take advantage of this newly found connectivity between devices. As a result, cyber criminals are now able to penetrate the network perimeter of organizations in ways that have not been seen before.
