Power BI Training
Not all Microsoft Power BI training is made equal, and there are good reasons to work with an industry expert.

Do you know what you need to know?
On the surface, Power BI looks like an easy to learn Microsoft tool, however what most people think they need to learn is often not even half of what they need. My live Power BI training course is conveniently split into 2 distinct learning days so that you can choose the level of learning that is right for you. Day one will teach you what you need to know to build reports and dashboards using data prepared by someone else. For those that want to learn more (e.g. business analysts, Excel power users), come back for day 2 and learn what you actually need to know to be good using this tool by enhancing the underlying data so you can extract the hidden insights.

I’m always looking for more productive ways to work with Power BI and associated tools. As I covered in my article last week, development of Power BI reports using SharePoint for your file storage can be so slow that it is impractical. In this article I discuss the various options
Until recently, I had not spent a lot of time building Power BI Reporting solutions that have SharePoint Online as a data source (This article refers to SharePoint Online specifically, but I am sure the experience is the same with on premise SharePoint). Over the last month or so I
