Customization and efficiency have always been important to businesses. To some it may seem obvious, but in reality, these two software features are frequently overlooked.
Akvelon is proud to have worked on two new releases from Microsoft which were made available last week. The first, Azure Analysis Services Web Designer, efficiently brings the capabilities of AAS right to your web browser. The second, the Power KPI add-on for Power BI, which contains some truly powerful customization capabilities.
At the Microsoft Data Insights Summit in June of this year, Josh Caplan of Microsoft announced the Azure Analysis Services Web Designer with a demo of its features.
Released last week, this new product provides enhancements to the Azure Analysis Services experience by allowing users to easily update their production models on a daily basis with the most relevant information to everyone on an account, all through a web browser. Users can also tune existing models through a web browser and still incorporate Power BI, Excel, and Visual Studio within the models.
Model creation, model editing and queries are the three major capabilities featured in this first release. SQL Server Data Tools and SQL Server Management Studio are still main tools for development, but the AAS Web Designer is great for using existing SQL data for simple changes, starting new models, or adding new measures to a development or production model.
This has already proved to be an efficient tool and more functionality will be released each month, make sure to watch for more soon.
The power KPI add-on to Power BI was also recently released, it brings a new level of customization to KPI indicators. Power KPI allows for visualizing key performance indicators while allowing users to customize everything from the titles, data points, hover-over tooltips, colors, font sizes, labels and more. Charts also auto-scale when resizing.
Developers from Akvelon did an incredible job working with Microsoft to create this beautiful presentation tool.
Power KPI is a great way to present KPIs that look great, plain and simple. Watch the video below to see for yourself.
Working with data for professional athlete injury avoidance
Data science in sports has evolved and accelerated over the last several years, helping teams make better decisions regarding athletes and strategy (post & pre game, scouting, recruitment & acquisitions). The adoption and evolution of new applied technologies is slowly replacing notational analysis and allowing for improved insights into large data sets with specific actions to affect performance, create high performance environments and optimize applied Sports Science approaches.
Akvelon has seen the potential of sports technology, thanks to our participation in projects with professional sports teams and sports application development around the world. This exciting advancement was recently shown at the Microsoft Data Insights Summit. The Seattle Seahawks, in collaboration with Akvelon, Microsoft and Advanced Machines LLC, presented some new technologies that aid in player injury prevention.
This process uses Facial Recognition to identify the players, specially designed hardware to capture specific core and strength measurements, Azure Services to analyze the data and Power BI to visualize insights from the data.
Dean Riddle of the Seattle Seahawks and the Sports Science team utilize the results of these measurements to adapt training sessions and load for particular players who could be at risk from potential injuries.

The collected data is visualized through the use of Power BI toolset for quick interpretations and insights into the data gathered from the device. It’s incredibly valuable to help ensure the continued health of the athlete, aid in the training load decision making processes and feedback mechanism of the coaches.
Dean Riddle and Patrick Ward from the Seattle Seahawks’ Sports Science Team in conversation with Marc Reguera demonstrated the technology on Monday, June 12th. We look forward to working on further advancements in this exciting area of growth.
[We were] very impressed with [your consultants’] efforts and progress in on-boarding to NRP and starting on-call duties. We truly appreciate their help. Thanks alot, guys.
