Gain a 360° overview of how to explore and use Power BI to build impactful reports. In this course, you’ll go from zero to hero, as you discover how to use this popular business intelligence platform through hands-on exercises. You’ll first learn how to confidently load and transform data using Power Query and the importance of data models, before diving into creating visualizations using Power BI’s drag-and-drop functionality. You’ll also learn how to drill-down into reports and make your reports fully interactive. Lastly, you'll level-up your skills using DAX formulas (Data Analysis Expressions) to create customized calculated columns and fields to better analyze your data. Get started now. You've got the power!

Getting Started with Power BI:

Discover how to navigate this intuitive tool and get to grips with Power BI’s Data, Model, and Report views. You’ll load multiple datasets in the Data view, build a data model to understand the relationships between your tables in Model view, and create your first bar graph and interactive map visualization in Report view. You’ll also practice using Power Query Editor to prep your data for analysis.
