Overview – 

This two-day course goes beyond just the basics and includes a comprehensive look at using Power BI Desktop, as well as Microsoft’s Power BI Pro online service.

With Power BI, you get a report authoring tool that enables you to connect to and transform data from a wide variety of sources. This allows you to then produce detailed reports through a comprehensive range of visualizations.

The reward is to then be able to share those reports with your team inside or outside of your organisation, simply by publishing them to Power BI online service.

This course allows you to gain a thorough understanding of the complete Power BI cycle by working with real-world examples and will equip you with the necessary skills to start applying your knowledge straight away.
