Microsoft Power BI has the ability to do many wonderful things that will blow your mind, including:
- Create reports that can be refreshed with a single click – no more ‘cutting and pasting’ from CSV files to rebuild the report each month.
- Create engaging visualisations that make the end users WANT to read your reports.
- Derive data insights from the raw data with data modelling and visualisations that facilitates ease of decision making by the consumers of the reports.
During the Brisbane Power BI training, you will learn what you need to know so you can be great at using this tool. With the hands-on inclusive training approach, you will learn to:
- Load data from various sources.
- Reshape the data so it is usable inside your reports.
- Build the reports using the very latest features that are included in Power BI
- Share the reports with others inside and outside your organisation.
- Create dashboards on Power BI.com.
- Learn the DAX language (the data modelling language of Power BI). Unless you learn how to write DAX, you will get limited benefit from using Power BI.
- Data modelling with DAX in Power BI.
