What is Power BI?
Power BI is Microsoft’s powerful and analytical toolset that enables organizations to make timely and strategic business decisions. In creating Power BI solutions, organizations create a culture of “self-service” by allowing business users to get quick, actionable insights from their data.
How Does Power BI Work?
In a nutshell, you load your transactional and lookup data into the Data Model from as many different sources as necessary. If your data needs cleanup before it goes into the Data Model, you can do amazing things with Power Query. Once your clean data is loaded and relationships between your tables are correctly established, you write calculations (Explicit Measures) using DAX functions. DAX functions are similar to Excel functions, but they are much more powerful and different enough to require training. (In our 4-day BI Bootcamp, the entire 2nd day is dedicated to Query, and the entire 3nd day is dedicated to writing Measures using DAX functions). If you need KPIs, you need Explicit Measures. Once the Measures are created, you can start creating powerful visuals using standard Pivot Tables and Pivot Charts, or you can create more visually-appealing analyses using Power Map/3D Maps and Power View.
Power BI Desktop is a stunning interface to all of the above. If your IT department has already created a Data Model and written Measures for you, you can use Power BI Desktop to do amazing things. If you are responsible for creating the Data Model, writing Measures, and presenting the Visuals, you need to take CompuTrain’s 4-Day Power BI Boot Camp, our featured course.
Our course content and delivery are continuously refined with each release of the Microsoft Office Business Intelligence tools resulting in training classes that are always current, impactful, engaging, and purposeful.
Why Take the Power BI Boot Camp Class at CompuTrain?
To date, most CompuTrain students interested in Power BI Training have opted to attend our Power BI Boot Camp class, our featured Power BI course, which delivers an end-to-end instructional presentation of Microsoft Power BI.
The class was strategically designed to give the proper amount and depth of instruction in the different Power BI components to allow students to return to the workplace and be successful.
In Power BI Boot Camp, students are creating their own Power BI Solutions. We are not simply demonstrating previously-built data models. It is a DIY (do-it-yourself) experience.
All Power BI Training classes at CompuTrain are In-Person and Instructor-Led. They are not remote or virtual classes nor hybrid classes. Your professional Power BI instructor is with you in the classroom to directly ask questions about class content, including questions that pertain to your specific implementation. It is also important to have the convenience of an instructor with the ability to look over your shoulder to ensure you are grasping the content being delivered.
What’s the Difference?
Power BI Desktop vs. Power BI Pro vs. Power BI Premium?
Because Power BI is evolving rapidly, it’s challenging to know what to ask for when you need training. Here’s a breakdown of the different versions of Power BI.
