Description

Data mining and data analysis are two of the most important activities in the business world today. People are grappling with uncovering the hidden secrets within the masses of data that is generated everywhere. Do you want to derive valuable insights from data and share information with others? Microsoft’s Power BI can be the most powerful tool in your arsenal. It has every feature you ever need in MS Excel and much more. It is easy to get lost in the many capabilities and functionalities of Power BI and in this Power BI certification, you will learn how to use every feature of Microsoft Power BI to your advantage and generate meaningful tables, graphs and reports. The trainer takes you step-by-step through all the essential and valuable workflows to create and share reports and dashboards. You will also have access to exercises and resource materials to practice these techniques to aid your learning.

You will begin the course by looking at business scenarios where Power BI can be beneficial, especially in comparison to MS Excel. You will study the user interface, connect to a data source, and create your first simple Power BI report. At this point, you will find that you can capture data from different data sources in one report, combine data quickly from multiple sources and then use various visualizations to present the data meaningfully. Some advanced features to extend reporting are only available in Power BI and some of what you will learn includes displaying data on maps or enriching your visualizations with radial gauges with only a few clicks. The content will also teach you how to format data using filters, slicers, and separators. Sometimes the data source does not provide all the information you need for optimal evaluation and in such cases, Power BI enables you to perform and add complex calculations, additional measures and columns with minimum effort.

To make the most of this Power BI course, a reasonable level of Excel knowledge and experience in using databases such as MS Access is helpful but not mandatory. You will need to have Power BI Pro installed on your computer to practice the exercises. If you don't want to invest in a licensed version right now, there is a 60-day free trial version that you can install. The last topic of the course demonstrates how to install Power BI Pro and activate the Power BI service, so enrol in this in-depth course and wow your audience with the most phenomenal data analysis reports they have ever seen. Whether you are in data science, finance, or even graphic design, your new data visualization skills can be used in just about any area of study or profession and can open a whole host of career opportunities.
