Impact of Weather on English Premier League Matches – Power BI Analysis

Have you ever wondered if there are more goals scored when it rains or if Stoke wins more games on cold weekday evenings at Britannia? This session shows how you can use open data sources and web pages to gather data. How you can then manipulate and extend it and finally report on it. We will look into how you can use data from Azure data market and combine it with data from web pages to create the dataset you need. When we have our dataset we will manipulate and extend it using M and DAX so that we can get meaningful insights from it. We will then dive into the data to see if there is anything to report. In this end to end Power BI Desktop demo we will use fun data that many can relate to, as the English Premier League is one of the most popular football leagues in the world. The audience will take away many nuggets of information from this real world example. In this demo rich session I will share all the obstacles and learnings from creating this report so you will see both the limitation of Power BI Desktop and open data as well as its strength.
