17 & 18 September 2024

Overview

Microsoft Power BI is a suite of business intelligence (BI) services that allows business users to perform sophisticated data analysis turning data into actionable insights. In this course we will introduce the Power BI Desktop program and use it to fetch data from a variety of sources and then visually present our analysis in an interactive report. We then publish the report to the online service where we create a dashboard and look at how we use both to derive business insights.

If you have a keen interest in Data and want to find ways of automating the processes of collecting, cleaning and visualising it, this is the course for you! Join us for a fun, in-depth and practical hands-on introduction to self-service Business Intelligence.
