Description

NOTE: Power BI Desktop is currently only available for PC / Windows

This course provides an introduction on how to transform, analyze and visualize data with Power BI Desktop. A corporate data set is used to build a rich and interactive report with a number of different visualizations. The relationships between various data sources are defined to create a relational data model.

Participants will be able to explore the company’s data by cross-filtering and drilling down through various levels in the visualizations.
