Take advantage of Power BI to produce the best outcomes for your business and utilize business data to the fullest

Knowing how to type does not make someone an author, and being able to cook is not enough to be a restaurateur. It’s easy to get started with Power BI, but a range of additional skills is necessary to take full advantage of its potential. This course will show you how to get the best out of Power BI so you can make reliable business decisions from the data you have.

Data is a business resource, just like display space in a retail store or machine tools in a factory. Factories must make full use of their machinery, warehouses must make full use of their storage space, and your business must make full use of its data. Your competitors know this, and are not hesitating. While some business tools require specialized skills, Power BI is the Microsoft Excel of the new world of advanced data visualizations, data mining, and machine learning; that is, it’s a powerful tool that anyone can use. Importing data is not enough, you must mold it into structures that are ideal for business analysis. You no longer have to rely on the IT department for everything you need. Despite its great power, Power BI brings analytic and business intelligence to the desktops and smartphones of business people, not just IT professionals.

If you are not satisfied with just being a Power BI beginner and want to become a Power BI master, this course will provide the knowledge and insights you will need.
