Power BI Dashboard & Report Masterclass: Analyse and Visualise Data with Power BI

Workshop Overview

Tired of struggling with countless complex Excel reports which contain hundreds of formulas, not to mention the headache of trying to make sure everyone is using the latest version. Power BI is a suite of interactive data visualisation business analytics tools that deliver insights throughout your organisation. You can use Power BI to connect to hundreds of data sources, simply data preparation, and drive ad hoc analysis. Power BI produces beautiful reports, then publish them for your organisation to consume on the web and across mobile devices. Everyone can create personalised dashboards with a unique, 360° view of their business and scale across the enterprise, with governance and security built-in.
