Why study this course

Power BI is an interactive data visualisation software product developed by Microsoft with a primary focus on business intelligence. Power BI lets you connect to and visualise almost any data. Data Storytelling is the art of converting numbers into narratives. Stories that incorporate data are more convincing than those based on anecdotes. Most reports simply present data and then leave it up to the consumer to interpret the data and extract insights from it.

This one-day course will cover Power BI report layouts and structure the agile process to create Power BI data visualisations. It will help attendees to understand the art behind visualisations, the implications behind choosing the right charts, the impact of colour, shape, and size, and finally the use of Power BI custom visuals. The course includes various design patterns of dashboards and reports, as well as best practices for authoring great reports and dashboards for business users.

Important note: Power BI is a Microsoft App that is not currently supported on non-Windows systems (such as Apple Mac).
