Using R scripts in Power BI

Learn how to create predictive models, use data mining tools or create visuals not available in native PBI.

Do you need to perform statistical analyses on your data? Do you want to present the results in Power BI? Learn how you can use the R statistical programming language within Power BI to harness the strengths of both of these tools.

In this recorded webinar, our Data Scientist Tamara Shatar PhD, will show you how to get started using R within Power BI. We'll work through examples of how to use R scripts to import, create, modify or analyse your data and visualise the results. We'll discuss data frames - what they are and how they are used to save your results or refer to your data in your R Scripts. And we'll identify the benefits and limitations of using R in Power BI. If you are interested in learning about R this is a great introduction. Tamara also delivers our Introduction to R courses both in class around Australia and online.
