Thanks for listening to Raw Data By P3 Adaptive...Have a Data Day!

Jun 1, 2021

Chris Webb is an OG in the Microsoft data universe, having long-time knowledge of the Microsoft Data Platform...even pre-dating Rob's own experience with the tools!
He's a Principal Program Manager on Microsoft's elite Power BI Customer Advisory Team (The CAT Team)!  He and Rob have known each other for a long time. Their relationship was, at times, adversarial.  Now, though, they are allies that spread the gospel of Power BI and the Microsoft Power Platform!
