what you get
Here’s what you’ll learn in Introduction to Power BI!
In typical DataCamp innovative learning style, you'll have access to a virtual workstation with Power BI loaded. Each lesson in free chapter has exercise files that you can load directly from the DataCamp interface. You'll be guided through every step that you are asked to take.
By the end of this lesson, you'll be ready to create basic reports and manage data!
Learn the Interface
Learning the interface of any software package can be overwhelming. However, the instructor guides you through the process.
Discover how to navigate the software, manipulate data, and produce professional-looking reports!
Have you ever taken training from DataCamp? If not, you'll discover a state-of-the-art, intuitive method of learning that is quickly becoming an industry standard.
Intro to Power BI is one of the newer offerings from the company, and it more than delivers on learnability (for a lack of a better term!)
Although DataCamp provides an innovative and slick learning environment, not all courses are created equal. Some are good, some are MEH, but there are those that are great!
You simply won't find a better course that will teach you the amount of information you'll learn in as short a period!
Why Power BI?
Data is the new gold rush. Companies that are able to wrangle insight from their data will have a huge advantage over their competitors.
Power BI can do in minutes what takes analysts weeks to produce. No more trying to locate disparate spreadsheets. Simply load them into Power BI, rearrange the data, create your reports, and your analysis is ready to present to decision makers. The software's powerful transformation features will remember what to do for future data imports, too!
Most companies don't have the resources to hire skilled Business Intelligence personnel. By learning how to take command of your data, you'll be in a wickedly good position at your company. It could even spearhead a new career (this happens often).
In case you're wondering, data analysts and business intelligence specialists command rather high salaries (usually six figures!)
Once you see the capabilities of Power BI, you'll never go back to creating analytics reports in Excel!
