As technology progresses and becomes more interwoven with our businesses and lives, more data is collected about business and personal activities. This era of "big data" has exploded due to the rise of cloud computing, which provides an abundance of computational power and storage, allowing organizations of all sorts to capture and store data. Leveraging that data effectively can provide timely insights and a competitive advantage.

The creation of data-backed visualizations is a key way data scientists, or any professional, can explore, analyze, and report insights and trends from data. This Microsoft® Power BI® Data Analysis Professional training course software is designed for this purpose. Power BI was built to connect to a wide range of data sources, and allows 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, allowing users to create compelling and interactive worksheets, dashboards, and stories that bring data to life and turn data into thoughtful action.


Course Objectives:

 In this course, you will explore and visualize data with Power BI.

You will:

  •     Analyze data with self-service BI.
  •     Connect to data sources.
  •     Perform advanced data modeling and shaping.
