Course description

All organizations these days have significant data holdings. Leadership wants evidence to support their decision making and they know about the data. They want answers to their questions. Unlocking the value hiding in the data with limited resources is the challenge. Fortunately, Microsoft has been hard at work developing BI capabilities that are laser focused on this requirement. Microsoft Power BI Desktop is an excellent tool for building data models that let you explore and perform analyses with efficiencies you have only dreamed about. It really is that good. You will learn how to effectively transform raw data into a workable format and disseminate that refined data throughout your organization.
