This course is aimed at anyone who wishes to get started with designing, creating and publishing a Power BI Business Intelligence solution.
The course covers the loading and transforming of source data, the building of a tabular data model that provides a collection of related tables of data offering common hierarchies and measures used in the day to day analytics of business data and performance, the creation of reports, the publishing of datasets and reports to Office 365 Power BI, the creation of Dashboards presenting key visualisations, and the sharing of Dashboards and Reports to those that need them.
Power BI employs the functionality of Power Query, Power Pivot and Power View behind the scenes so if you have used any of these add-ins from within Excel you may have met some Power Bi features and tools already. This course is also suitable for those who intend to use the individual components as Excel Add Ins.
There are no specific technical pre-requisites for this course, but a familiarity with Excel and/or Relational Database Technologies may be beneficial. The main pre-requisite is to have a basic understanding of your business's need to collect, cleanse, analyse and deliver insights and visualisations of your business data.
