Power BI Weekly Issue 6: 7th May 2019

Only one announcement in this week's newsletter: Oracle and Teradata data source support and hourly e-mail subscriptions for Paginated Reports now available. Elsewhere, Kasper de Jonge has described How Power BI enables remote communities in Africa to track AIDS, Koen Verbeeck has explained how to Refresh Power BI Dataset using Azure Logic Apps - Part 2, and Chris Webb digs into the DAX Machine Learning Functionality Used By The Key Influencers Visual In Power BI.

Some of you may be at Build at the moment - if you are, we hope you're having a fantastic time. We'll have all the Power BI updates highlighted in next week's newslettter, so don't worry too much about keeping track of them.

Also, let me know if you're heading to the London Power BI user group meet-up tomorrow - I'll be attending and it'd be great to meet some of you. Chris Webb is providing an introduction to Dataflows in Power BI, which I'm sure will prove to be very useful.
