In today’s economic environment you are being asked to improve your business by leveraging data to make critical business decisions efficiently, accurately and effectively.
Power BI is a business analytics service that gives you a unique view of your business data, with the ability to monitor the state of your business using real-time dashboards, create comprehensive interactive reports, and access your data wherever you are using your mobile devices.
The goal of this informative session is to help you understand how to comprehensively and effectively analyze data. Whether you are evaluating the ability to meet organizational requirements related to data visualization and analysis or are looking to learn how it can help you be more efficient and have a greater impact on the work you do every day, this is the workshop for you.
By the end of the day, you will have all the guidance needed to:
• Connect, import, and transform data from various sources
• Define business rules and KPIs
• Explore data with powerful visualization tools
• Generate outstanding reports
• Share dashboards with your team and business partners and publish them on the web
This workshop is free to attend, but as places are limited, please sign up and we will be able to confirm your place as soon as possible.
After briefly introducing ourselves we’ll get you acquainted with Power BI and its brilliant capabilities. By diving into the web portal, we’ll show you how to navigate around platform and start creating visualizations.
By using the Power BI Desktop Query Editor we’ll show you how to ingest data from multiple disparate sources and to unite them into a single data model.
Once the data has been ingested, we demonstrate how the Query Editor is used to perform data transformations. Once uploaded into the data model, you’ll see how flexibile the Editor is to make amends, from adding calculations to amending the relationships and structure of the model for optimal use.
We then look at Power BI Desktop which is used to create visualizations and reports based on the data model. You’ll be shown how to configure and set up visualizations, as well as understanding how each visualization can interact another for in-depth insights.
We will create dashboards and demonstrate how Power BI’s natural language function can empower anyone to visualize and understand the data they need. We’ll cover how to schedule data refreshes and integration with Cortana.
We will take you through how Power BI service enables you to share the reports with colleagues as well as discuss the various ways you can share the content to enable only authorized users to see the data.
The objective of this session is to help you understand how to analyze data comprehensively and effectively. Whether you are assessing your ability to meet data visualization and analysis requirements or you are trying to learn how to be more efficient by having a greater impact on the work you do every day, this is the workshop for you.
