What I learnt from my Power BI Training

I was a little tentative going into the class not having used Power BI before but I was surprised how familiar it felt after the first few minutes.

The Power BI Beginner Course is an excellent introduction to Power BI. What I learned straight away was that BI stands for Business Intelligence. This is where Power BI really sets itself apart by providing insights about data that can drive business decisions.

The course delved into creating datasets (models) from one/multiple data sources to create a data model. We then created reports containing visualisations of the model. This included using maps, a wide range of charts, tables and gauges. Following this we learned how to share the reports through Dashboards and finally how to interact with Reports and Dashboards through the cloud based service - we even saw how easy it was on a phone/tablet.

If you have a beginner or intermediate understanding of Excel, the functionality of Power BI is straight forward.

So, although it may be a new program it still seems familiar.

The Power BI training course goes through the process of importing data and creating visualisations to share the story of the important findings of the business. It was great to see how you can demonstrate this data in some very unique ways. In fact, the program is intelligent enough to pick up on trends that it sees. And you can even ask it to find trends that exist (somewhere) in the data.

The course also goes over the functionality of the Desktop version and Service or cloud-based version of Power BI. The difference being in the Desktop version you can really get in and 'clean' the data to ensure what you import is usable. Where as the Service version is where you can create and 'play' with the visualisations and finally share them.

Overall, Power BI allows for business monitoring, getting answers quickly with rich dashboards that are available on every device. End-users get instant access to real-time data with visualisations that can also be shared. It's a useful program and app that continues to evolve and get better by the day. The online community surrounding Power BI offering assistance is also very up to date and helpful.

I look forward to the upcoming Power BI Intermediate Course Launching in late November.

Lot of content, Michael was easy to follow and very helpful. I have lots to take back to work an d practice. I note that we didn't go through the book as it is laid out and there are probably a lot of exercises that we didn't get time to do. I expect that this will need to be done in our own time later. I think this course can be stretched over 2 days. -Power BI DAX Sydney

This course was very informative for someone who is very familiar with Excel and self-taught but wanting to fill in the gaps and expand their knowledge even more. Steven was a brilliant trainer - he spoke clearly and slowly (which really helps when doing this course online) and made sure that everyone in the session was following each step. And his virtual chocolate frogs were much appreciated! Thank you so much! -Excel Advanced Brisbane

Steven was a fantastic teacher - explained things clearly and checked in. His also took the time to find out what we do for work and try to tailor what we focused on based on those needs or highlight when what we were learning may be especialy applicable to certain people. The course is great with the resources to play with - i got a lot out of it Virutal chocolate frogs for Steven! -Excel Advanced Brisbane
