2-day Training Class: Power BI cloud-based business analytics – Chesterfield

Tue, 14, Aug, 2018 09:00AM - 17:00PM BST

Are you responsible for the generation of financial reports, either on a regular or ad hoc basis? Do you sometimes struggle to quickly obtain accurate data for month-end reports? Does it sometimes take you days to produce month end or other financial or operational reporting?

If so, join our 2-day Training Class and get fully up to speed on Power BI – the latest self-service BI application from Microsoft. Power BI is a cloud-based business analytics service that enables anyone to visualise and analyse data with greater speed, efficiency, and understanding.

It connects users to a broad range of data through easy-to-use dashboards, interactive reports, and compelling visualisations that bring data to life. It also provides almost instant access to a wide selection of data sources, including Dynamics, Excel and the Internet of Things.

For a special one-off cost of just £500 (excluding VAT), you will learn how to:

  • Visualise and analyse all your data in one place
  • Use natural language to request the right charts and graphs
  • Stop searching for data and instead explore it through a drag-and-drop canvas
  • Transform ROI by discovering and acting upon great opportunities
  • Publish reports and Dashboards individually and inside Apps
  • Build and share interactive dashboards
  • Combine multiple data sources
  • Build custom data models from on-premise and cloud data

In this shared training environment with your peers, you will learn best-practice on how to provide relevant and timely information across your business to those who need it most – with supreme confidence that the reports truly represent the underlying data in the ledgers.
