Course Overview

As data acquisition, access, analysis, and reporting are interwoven with our businesses and lives, more and more data is collected about business and personal activities. This abundance of data and the computing power to analyze it has increased the use of data analysis and data visualization across a broad range of job roles. Decision makers of all types, including managers and executives, must interact with, interpret, and develop reports based on data and analysis provided to them. Microsoft Power BI software is designed for data analysis and the creation of visualizations. Data analysts prepare data, perform initial analysis, and create visualizations that are then passed to business data decision makers. These decision makers can use Power BI's tools to explore the data, perform further analysis to find new insights, make decisions, and create customized reports to share their findings.

Course Objectives

  • Explore Power BI reports.
  • Analyze data to get answers and insights.
  • Sort and group data for analysis and reporting.
  • Filter visualizations.
  • Prepare reports.
  • Troubleshoot, collaborate, and share reports.

Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for professionals in a variety of job roles who receive Power BI data visualizations and reports from data analysts or from data visualization engineers. These data report recipients want to use the features and capabilities of Power BI to fully explore the visualizations and initial analyses provided to them in reports, perform additional analysis to ask next-level questions of the data, and to customize and create new visualizations and dashboards in order to share new insights and create compelling reports.
