Who is this course for?

This course is designed for business users, project managers, and any professional interested in leveraging data to make informed decisions. Whether you’re new to data analytics or seeking to enhance your skills in data visualization and report sharing, this course will equip you with the knowledge and practical skills to utilize Power BI effectively. Ideal for those aiming to transform raw data into actionable insights, improve project management processes, or communicate performance metrics more effectively, our sessions will empower you to make the most of Power BI’s capabilities.

Introduction to the Power BI Suite (60 min)

This session will introduce you to the Power BI suite of products and applications from Microsoft. At the end of this session, you will understand what Power BI is and how it can be used to visualize different types of data from multiple data sources. You will also understand the process of creating and publishing reports, understand workspaces, apps, permissions, the mobile app, etc.

Deep Dive into Shaping Data using Power Query (60 min)

Data rarely exists in the exact format or shape that we want it. It needs “massaging”, errors need to be removed, and often new data needs to be derived from the existing data set. In this session, you’ll learn how to use Query Editor inside the Power BI desktop client to transform your existing data so that it suits your purpose. We’ll use examples from both Microsoft Planner files and Project Online.

Once we’ve got our data into the required shape, we can begin to visualize it, i.e., build reports and dashboards for users to view. Once again, we’ll take Planner files, publish the reports, and create dashboards in the Power BI Service so that they can be shared within our organization. We’ll also show how these reports and dashboards can be viewed on mobile devices and the information socialized within the mobile app.
