    About Microsoft Power BI (Business Intelligence) Workshop

    Microsoft Power BI Workshop

    In order to make sense out of the huge amount of data available in your business, which needs more reporting power and analysis than that offered by Microsoft Excel, Power BI is a cutting edge business intelligence tool. In today’s business, data is a lifeline and with the right tools, we’re generating more of it than ever. Power BI will help you manage data from a number of cloud-based & on-premises applications and services. You will manage, correlate, and analyze data from a variety of sources through a user-friendly dashboard.

    Is this course for you?

    You’re using Microsoft Excel to manage your company data and present reports but now find it has limitations. Microsoft Power BI will provide a perfect tool for you to link to company data “where ever that may be”, or link to multiple data sources. You can then create steps to clean, filter, delete, manipulate, append data in order to prepare it for the next step. Formulas can be introduced to support data analysis. Slicers can be used to create an interactive analysis of your visualisations. Dashboard reports displaying a range of performance visualisations can be created and published for general or specific members of your organisation to view. Gone are the days of creating weekly or monthly reports for management.


    You should have a good depth of knowledge of Internet Explorer 10.0 or later and be familiar with general reporting concepts.

    You will need to install Power BI Desktop Application on your computer before the start of the course.

    You require access to Power BI in the cloud for deployment, preferably with an account and license:
