What you will learn

Power BI is a tool by Microsoft which allows you to no longer depend on you IT department to make reports and dashboards. With Power BI Desktop you can easily retrieve data and create visually attractive reports based on different data sources. During this two day training you will become acquainted with four sections: Query, Relations, Data and Report.

Query

This Power BI function enables you to import, transform and clean up data. We will demonstrate how to make a qualitative data selection and how to convert data into one and the same format to make reports. Via the user interface we also take a look at the possibilities of the Power Query formulas.

Relations

With Power BI you can connect various sets of data in order to obtain an operable model.

Data

Thanks to the so-called DAX functionalities you will be able to enrich your data through adding your own calculations and data mapping.

Report

We will show you how to visualize selected data using filters, lay-out, adjusted colours, etc. This will make it easier for you and others to interpret data and drawn your own conclusions. Next to that we explain how you can share reports with colleagues and with external contacts.
