Course Description

Course Description

Gone are the days of submitting a request to the IT Department and waiting for them to produce a less-than-perfect report. With Power BI you can create those reports yourself, right from your computer (that's where the term self-service reporting comes from).

Power BI is an application from Microsoft that turns your raw data (loaded in from a variety of sources) into stunning interactive visual reports, providing you with real-time insights into your data and enabling you to make better business decisions.

Your data is only as good as the information you can derive from it. Power BI enables you to gain better business insights and make more informed business decisions.

If you want to take your reporting capabilities to the next level by learning how to leverage the functionality of Power BI, this is a must-attend CPE/CPD webinar!

Major topics covered in this CPE/CPD computer software webinar:

  • Connect your data sources (Excel, database, text file, etc.) to Power BI
  • Add visual elements to a report
  • Apply formatting to the report elements (colors, fonts, styles, etc.)
  • Simple steps for updating your report when the underlying dataset changes
  • Create interactive filters for reports
  • Automate the process of making your raw data “report ready” (most raw data needs some degree of cleaning and restructuring – Power BI makes this a snap!)
  • Share your report with colleagues

This CPD course is aimed at new users of Power BI who want to get started with the application.

Please note that the Power BI Desktop application is only available on Windows (i.e. it is not available for Mac or mobile devices)

Learning Objectives

  • To analyze how to create and design interactive reports using the Power BI Desktop application (Windows only), using practical examples.
  • To inspect how to add visual elements to a report.
  • To explain simple steps for updating your report when the underlying dataset changes.
  • To identify how to share reports with other people.
  • To evaluate how to leverage the functionality of Power BI.
