This course provides lessons on acquiring data, creating basic visuals, and working with functionalities like filters and drills. You will learn how to create advanced visuals for your analysis and properly format visuals and pages. The material will then go further to show you how to create interactive dashboards. It begins by defining the MicroStrategy Desktop tool and outlining its functions. You will be introduced to the benefits of using this tool and how to download it. Then learn how dossiers are created and saved, and be introduced to the process of creating the different gallery elements such as bar charts, maps, tables, pie charts, ring charts, word maps, sunbursts, heat maps, and area maps on a dossier.

Have you ever considered combining multiple charts on a page and how this can be effectively applied? This course will show you how to do that. It also shows the learner how to accurately interpret data using a map. You will also learn about formatting, customizing a table and creating a chart using data exploration.

Data analytics is no longer a new activity as businesses frequently employ this practice to acquire relevant insights. Information is spread across various and sometimes complex sources such as Excel sheets, SQL files or even websites. And, quite often, it requires adequate cleaning, wrangling, and manipulation before and during analysis. There are a number of data analytic tools available to individuals or organizations who intend to do data analysis but not many are free and easy to use. MicroStrategy Desktop is widely used because it can connect with existing enterprise apps and systems, is a useful tool for solving big data-related issues, is user-friendly and offers advanced and predictive analytics features. Although there is a lot more than the user stands to learn with this program by practice, this online practical course comprehensively covers a general lifecycle of how the program can be used to produce relevant insight for businesses or individuals.
