Whats Involved

Power BI enables you to take raw data from a data source, transform it into usable data and utilise it to make reports and informative graphics for data analysis. Information can be visualised through charts, graphs, KPIs, maps, etc. to gain valuable insights just by looking at them.

This course will use Power BI Desktop, which is free and includes tools for data visualisation, data preparation, data modelling, data cleansing and publishing reports to the Power BI Service.

On completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Navigate the Power BI desktop interface
  • Connect to data
  • Transform data
  • Create calculated columns
  • Create visualisations (visuals) to display insights from the data
  • Customise visuals
  • Use slicers to filter visuals
  • Build reports
  • Publish a report

Prior to attending the course you should have:

  • Power BI desktop installed
  • Excel installed

For the training sessions, a second screen would be beneficial to enable you to follow the trainer's screen while carrying out the exercises on the other, but is not mandatory.
