Training Course Overview
Power BI is fast becoming the go-to applications for businesses small and large to step-change their reporting needs. These tools are new, and different enough to regular Excel that most people benefit from some live training from an expert. This training course focuses on teaching business/IT users the fundamental principles of data modelling using Power BI and the DAX (Data Analysis Expressions) language.
The course comprises of 1 module:
- Module 2 – Extracting Data Insights with Power BI and DAX (6.5 CPD hours)
This course is ideal if you already have a solid understanding and experience using Power BI report building, sharing and Power Query. It is recommended for most people that are relatively new to Power BI to attend the more comprehensive 2-module course “Power BI for the Business Analyst” that covers both reporting and data modelling.
Power BI DAX and Data Modelling
This training course enables you to move from simply building reports using someone else’s data, to preparing your own data for enhanced use. In this course you will learn:
- Overview of the DAX language (Data Analysis Expressions).
- Common functions in the DAX language.
- How to write formulas that leverage multiple tables.
- The CALCULATE function – the most important function in DAX.
- Advanced concepts including table functions such as ALL, FILTER.
- Time Intelligence.
