Event description

Creating Business Intelligence solutions no longer has to be a long, arduous process reserved exclusively for those in IT. Power BI now gives you the ability to build beautifully designed reports and dashboards on your own, giving you instant satisfaction to your data needs. This course will take a deep dive into the Power BI ecosystem, where you will learn from beginning to end how to develop solutions and solve complex business problems. This begins by importing and applying business rules to your data. Then organize the results into a data model with relationships and calculations. Finally, you will learn the best way to visualize your data on reports through a variety of charts, graphs, maps, and gauges. Once complete, learn how to deploy solutions to the Power BI Service and make dashboards that are visible from any device.


This class is targeted for power users or end-users looking to design their own self-service Business Intelligence solutions. Because this class is focused on self-service end-user solutions, previous SQL Server knowledge is not required. While it’s not mandatory, ideally students should have a basic understanding of database terminology such as tables, views, columns, rows, etc.
