Microsoft Power BI


Struggling with complex Excel reports which contain hundreds of formulas?

This training is designed for analysts or organizational teams who need to derive and

share insights with business data.

We’ll show you how, without data analysis training or the need to learn another

language, you can be build and share reports and dashboards.

Learn how Power BI enables anyone to visualize and analyze data, with better speed and efficiency. It is a powerful as well as a flexible tool for connecting with and analyzing a wide variety of data.

This Course Focuses On;

Enabling users to interact with corporate information, to extract the reports and information they need as well as how to create compelling visualizations and reports that provide deep insights into your data.

Who should attend this course?

Anyone who wants to become familiar with Microsoft’s Power BI product, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced user.

DAX is a collection of functions, operators, and constants that can be used in a formula, or expression, to calculate and return one or more values. DAX helps you create new information from data already in your model.

Why is DAX so important?

It’s quite easy to create a new Power BI Desktop file and import some data into it. You can even create reports that show valuable insights without using any DAX formulas at all. But, what if you need to analyze growth percentage across product categories and for different date ranges? Or, you need to calculate year-over-year growth compared to market trends? DAX formulas provide this capability and many other important capabilities as well.

Learning how to create effective DAX formulas will help you get the most out of your data. When you get the information you need, you can begin to solve real business problems that affect your bottom line. This is the power in Power BI, and DAX will help you get there.
