Microsoft Excel Power BI
(Business Intelligence)
Introduction

Course Overview

Power BI is a collection of software services, apps, and connectors that work together to turn your unrelated sources of data into coherent, visually immersive, and interactive insights. Whether your data is a simple Excel spreadsheet, or a collection of cloud-based and on-premises hybrid data warehouses, Power BI lets you easily connect to your data sources, visualize (or discover) what's important, and share that with anyone or everyone you want. This course covers the three main elements – the Desktop, service, and Mobile apps. By the end of the course, participants will be creating reports in Power BI Desktop, sharing them in the service, and drilling into them on our Mobile devices.

Power BI Desktop is a free application you can install on your local computer that lets you connect to, transform, and visualize your data.

Most users who work on Business Intelligence projects use Power BI Desktop to create reports, and then use the Power BI service to share their reports with others.
