You’ll learn the fundamentals of how to use the Power BI data analytics software.

What Our Training Participants are Saying...

Do you have any questions?

What is Power BI?

Power BI was launched (generally available) in 2015, yet there are many people that are only just starting their own Power BI journey.  I presented a high level overview to the Sydney Power BI User Group in 2021.  I am sharing the video of this session here as a resource for anyone that is looking for a good, high level overview of this fabulous product.  In the video I explain the capabilities of Power BI cross the entire eco system. You wont learn how to use Power BI, but you will learn what is possible and hopefully be inspired by the possibilities.
