Power BI E-Learning Course

This course provides knowledge on using Microsoft Power BI.

Power BI is a business analytics solution that allows you to visualise data from different sources in one place. This allows you to keep track of your key figures at all times. You can import your data into Power BI Desktop and transform it as necessary without changing the underlying data. Then you can create meaningful reports by presenting your data with interactive visualisations. Publish your reports in the cloud-based Power BI Service app to share them with your organisation. In Power BI Service, you can, for example, share reports for viewing, edit them in shared workspaces with colleagues, and create dashboards.
