Welcome to a unique data strategy blog with a Fantasy Football wrapper and the Microsoft Power Platform engine. If you are a Fantasy Football veteran and want to learn more about data strategy, or if you are a data strategy veteran and want to learn about Fantasy Football, you have found the right blog.

Our Data Strategy Manager discusses how to form and improve data strategies for businesses of all sizes using the Microsoft Power Platform (Power BI, PowerApps, Power Automate, and Power Virtual Agent) in addition to Dynamics. To get the ball rolling, he spent last Sunday building out a data model leveraging Power BI and football statistics sourced from the web. After a day of sourcing and modeling data, he was able to get valuable insights that he would apply to upcoming Fantasy Football matches. As a basic example, using Power BI’s Decomposition Tree visual, he can make those tough ‘who should I start’ or ‘who should I keep’ decisions based on trending player and team statistics.Data Strategy And Fantasy Football
