This three-day instructor-led course is designed for professionals in a variety of job roles who are currently using desktop or web-based data-management tools such as Microsoft Excel or SQL Server reporting services to perform numerical or data analysis and creating data-backed visualizations.

Power BI connects to a wide range of data sources, and it enables users to quickly create visualizations of connected data to gain insights, show trends, and create reports. Power BI’s data connection capabilities and visualization features go far beyond those that can be found in spreadsheets, enabling users to create compelling and interactive worksheets, dashboards, and stories that bring data to life and turn data into thoughtful action.

This class will show you how to analyze data with self-service BI; connect to data sources; perform data cleaning, profiling, and shaping; visualize data with Power BI; enhance data analysis by adding and customizing visual elements; model data with calculations; create interactive visualizations; use advanced analysis techniques; enhance reports and dashboards; publish and share reports and dashboards; extend Power BI beyond the desktop.
