Microsoft Power BI Training Classes

Microsoft’s Power BI is a business analytics tool that turns data into powerful insights for making better business decisions. It has interactive visualizations with self-service business intelligence capabilities. Given its ease of use, one can create Power BI reports and dashboards themselves without having to involve technical staff for assistance. You can generate advanced reporting systems for sharing insights throughout an organization with Power BI.

Power BI consists of a Windows desktop application called Power BI Desktop, an online SaaS (Software as a Service) called the Power BI service, and mobile Power BI apps available on phones and tablets. It works well with various data sources, especially Microsoft Excel. Additionally, one can use DAX (Data Analysis Expressions formula language) to define custom calculations, and R language to replay a series of transformations. Advanced users can integrate Power BI and Azure Time Series Insights or Machine Learning to create forecasts.

Microsoft Power BI instructor-led training classes are available now to learn Power BI. Whether you train with our experienced instructors or do our On-Demand eLearning, you'll be working confidently with Power BI in no time!
