Power BI is Microsoft’s latest business intelligence (BI) and data visualisation tool that enables you to quickly develop stunning interactive dashboards that bring your data to life, and enable you to monitor your business on every device.

The free Power BI Desktop tool can get and model data from almost anywhere using the same Power Query and Power Pivot tools many Excel users will be familiar with. Then quickly create impressive interactive reports using the sophisticated charting and visualisation gallery.

You can even embed Excel charts, tables, PivotTables and dashboards in your Power BI dashboards using the free Power BI Publisher add-in for Excel.

Why Power BI?
  • Power BI is a vast program with lots of functionality which makes it an awesome tool, but it also means there is a lot to learn.
  • Power BI is easy to use for the most part but there are some fundamental things you must get.
  • Having Power BI, Power Query and Power Pivot skills is going to set your way above the Excel crowd and into the Data Analyst sphere with the potential to earn a higher salary.
  • Power BI Dashboards will enable your users to interact and drill down on the data. They can even create their own reports and views, which will increase interest in the data and reduce your workload.
  • No need to be familiar with databases or existing BI tools to learn and use Power BI.
