power BI issue

Hello all, I have been asked to re-brand and create a brand new website for a company that is currently unhappy with their site and the lack of traffic it brings.  Here is the situation, they want a new hosting company to host their new site, using the same domain, using Wordpress.  I understand how to create the new site using Wordpress and implementing Google Analytics, but I have never migrated a site from one host to another host.  Also, their existing site was not created with Wordpress CMS.  So my real question becomes, how would I migrate their website from the existing host to Bluehost Wordpress CMS?  Or is it possible to leave the old site on the old host and create the new one on Bluehost Wordpress and then effectively cut over from one host to the new host?  I would assume you know what I am asking now and I apologize for my lack of knowledge and experience with this situation.  Thank you very much!  Please let me know if you need more information from me.

Dear Experts
We are likely to get the power BI implementation project for this we have to hire the resources,  the customer will provide various data sources and we have to implement for this  what resources should we have to hire.
 I am not sure power BI developers alone can handle this hence I am thinking that we may require technical architect who can map the requirement to the power BI technology platform and prepares the functional specs and  tech specs document so that Power BI developers can use this document and develop. Please suggest is my understanding is correct and if found incorrect please help met to identify the right resource is it Project Manager/Solution architect/Technical architect who can fit this role and what experience they should be having. Please suggest.

Hello:

Below is a screenshot of a very simple Dashboard that I created in Power BI Desktop.  When I uploaded this to powerbi.com, I created a bar chart afterward.

When I pinned that bar chart to the Dashboard, I could not move it onto page 1.  Instead, to see the added bar chart, I have to scroll down.  This is shown in the second attached screenshot.

Anyway, not being able to drag the chart onto page 1 does not make for a very nice looking presentation.

In Power BI Desktop, how do I shrink the size of page 1 so that I can add charts, graphs, KPIs, or whatever I want later in powerbi.com?

Thank you!

John

Hi:

I really hate that someone has made it very difficult to create or edit a SQL Reporting Services (SSRS) Report.  In the old days, when I worked with SSRS everyday, I simply used the Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS).

Now, you cannot find anything like BIDS in the newer versions of SSRS.  I hate Report Builder and refuse to use it.

Last week, I followed instructions found online and installed Visual Studio Tools.  And, I asked the IT department to reboot the SQL box late at night.  This was all in an effort to find the latest equivalent of BIDS.

But, I cannot find this.

What in the world do I use and how do I find it?

Please help!  I can't believe that this tool has been buried, in the newer version of SSRS.  

Thank you!  Much appreciated!

Hi all,

After creating a CAFE list within Excel, we are assigning an excel "named range" in order to reference the "Cognos" list in VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP functions etc.
From what we can see, the named range gets lost (disappears) after pressing the "Refresh all data" button.

Is it the expected behavior? Is there a workaround? This does not happen when using Cognos for MS Office but the functionality there is different too (no exploration module). Obviously, without being able to use formulas like VLOOKUP functions in combination with Excel Ranges (which are dynamic and not static), the power of the module is very much limited.
In Cognos for MS Office, we can refer to the "identifier" of the Cognos list inserted in the report in order to create functions in Excel, and it does not get lost when refreshing.

Any help welcome …
Thanks!

How is the best way to find out if your site is performing poorly on Mobile browsers.  I have a caching plugin and there response is to ignore Google Pagespeed even though my page is showing a 68.
https://gyazo.com/0d8a95a07655c3335385271b26c82d8b

Can this value be ignored or is it affecting my Google ranking?

If it is, what can I present to this caching s/w company they are wrong?

Hi All,

I have a report that have been created a long time ago in Cognos 8, then migrated to Cognos 10, then now in Cognos 11.
It is working perfectly fine in Cognos 10, and the validation of this report gives only a warning "XQE-WRN-0018 The dimensionInfo in V5 query has been deprecated. The query will be planned regardless of dimensionInfo.". Warning I've never been able to solve, and that is not blocking for Cognos 10.

Now in Cognos 11. when trying to validate, the only message I get is "RSV-VAL-0010 Failed to load the report specification. XQE-PLN-0001 Internal error. The query could not be planned by the Query Service: java.lang.NullPointerException ".
I have checked all queries: they are all working when using "view tabular data". No errors, some data are displayed, etc...

Does anybody know how to solve this?
Any help, advice, etc.. will be appreciated...
Thanks!

SAP BI 4.1 - WEBI
This has one data source - a derived Universe for CA Service Desk Manager.

I am trying to add a variable to a report.  This is to check if a field is null.  If it is, return one value; if not, return another.
NOTE:  This issue occurs with ALL functions which have parenthesis - NOT just "isNull()".

Steps to Reproduce:

1.  Open WEBI.
2.  Open an existing report or create a new one where results return at least two fields, one of which may have NULL values.
3.  Create a new variable.(example)
-- Name:  vFirstGroup
-- Qualification:  Dimension
-- Formula:  
      =If isNull([First_Field]) Then [Second_Field] Else [First_Field]
a.  Validate the formula.  Results:  The formula is correct.
b.  Select OK to save the variable.  Results:  Error
    ///////////////////////////////////
Web Intelligence
There is no opening parenthesis after function "isNull" at position 11 (IES 10060)
   ////////////////////////////

The on-line documentation for "IES 10060" says to add the missing parenthesis.  That is not the case here.

This does not occur if creating a variable which does not include functions with parentheses.  For example, this works:
  = If [First_Field] = 0 Then [First_Field] Else [Second_Field]

Thanks in advance.

Is there a new site for Skype Analytics? The only one I had in my bookmarks isn't working any more:

https://adminportal.services.skypeforbusiness.com/analytics

This site can’t be reached

Also - is MS Teams call quality data captured in Skype Analytics? It appears to get into MS Call Quality tool. But there's no drill-in there.

I'm trying to set-up a P.O.C. for Video Tracking in Adobe Analytics. If you look at page 58, item #5 in the attached PDF. You'll see the following:

To quickly verify that the Heartbeat library was successfully imported, instantiate the
ADB.va.MediaHeartbeatConfig class.

I'm lost? I thought JavaScript didn't have classes? I know functions can simulate classes. Not sure what I'm supposed to do?  Any ideas?

I have Aliexpress affiliate website where I am getting most of my traffic from Search.

(http://aliexpressions.com)
(www.essmen.com)  

The sites have been around for about 45 days.  

I have placed links on Twitter, Reddit, Google Plus, Facebook and Instagram for traffic. And, I have completed the Google Analytics and Google Console.

I submitted the websites to other search engines a few days ago.

I placed the sites on Hotjar, the free version.

I am looking to get more "free" traffic!

I was told that it is best to let the website's index in Google for about six months.

I am going to send out press releases.  

I need some good ideas for more traffic. Can you help me?  I am a newbie.  Thanks in advance.

***Note I tried to put one of my Affiliate Website on Outbrain. I was told that my websites are not a good fit for their Native Ad.***
