Course Description

Power Bi Course

Microsoft recently launched the Power BI web based data transformation and dash boarding tool. Power BI Desktop is the starting point for anyone wanting to learn how to use this new technology. Power BI Desktop shares many of the similarities of its cousins Power Query & Power Pivot – the main difference is the ability to create a wide range of dynamic graphical dashboards. By building data visualisations you encourage the user to discover their own stories in the data.

Once you have built your reports and dashboards, you are free to publish them to the Power BI Service – this is the platform where you can share your work with colleagues and others outside of your organisation.
