Power BI is the collective name for an assortment of cloud-based apps and services that help organisations collate, manage, and analyse data from a variety of sources, through a user-friendly interface. Primarily, Power BI pulls data together and processes it, turning it into intelligible insights, often using visually compelling and easy-to-process charts and graphs. This allows users to generate and share clear and useful snapshots of what’s happening in their business.

Power BI is an incredibly powerful tool for both modeling and visualising data. It has the same base as Power Query so if you have experience with M or DAX you can start making calculated columns, measures, and even shaping your data before you import it without having to learn an entirely new language. This course will also introduce you to Power BI Q&A, which enables you to discover, explore and visualise enterprise data using Natural Language.
