For those who work in Finance and Operations, presenting what the numbers mean and how they impact the business is key to moving things forward. For one of our learners, this meant building expertise with Microsoft Power BI training.

What is Microsoft Power BI?

And how do you use it? An interactive data visualisation software product, it is an industry leader and one of the largest and fastest-growing business intelligence cloud solutions, used by over 35,000 companies worldwide.

Its primary focus is to support decision making. It gives teams a timely pulse on their performance. And reporting is interactive to allow users and viewers to easily connect to and model organisational and public data.

How do you learn Power BI?

You can find self-paced online courses for Power BI including those that offer a hands-on guided approach.

But end users can also access in-person and instructor-led or virtual instructor-led training that will allow you to explore the tool further. Through these modalities, participants learn how to use the Power BI tools by following a simple workflow for designing, developing, deploying and sharing reports and dashboards.

The Power BI Fundamentals course runs for 2 days. It has no prerequisites so you can sign up even with little to no experience of using the tool. Of course, having a background in setting up and presenting data using Excel and spreadsheets helps.

For those specialising in data analytics, you can look to studying Power BI's more technical features through courses like Microsoft PL-300T00. This course runs for 3 days and covers methods and best practices for accessing, processing and analysing data. It includes guides on how to implement proper security standards and policies across the Power BI spectrum including datasets and groups.

Add value to your reports with Microsoft Power BI training

Going through training and gaining a Microsoft Power BI certification have plenty of benefits for both professionals like Ashlea as well as businesses.

Individuals boost their job confidence, get qualifications for career advancement, and can add more value. It ensures that teams have the right people with the right capabilities to help them move their company and community projects forward.
