Power BI – Intermediate (1 day)

This one-day intermediate course is aimed at delegates that have already completed the one day ‘Power BI - Getting Started’ course. Delegates will build on their existing knowledge by working with data from a wider range of sources, such as the web, Odata and others. The main theme of this day is to get delegates to build their own reports from scratch and answer a number of questions that can only be answered if the data has been imported and modelled correctly and if certain Power BI features and functions have been employed.

“Martyn can take data from a myriad of sources, in different formats and he can make it tell a story of a business, providing insightful reports from which you can make clear informed decisions. He explains things in plain English so it’s easy to understand and implement.”

Governance & Quality

Data Governance is the business practice that defines and manages strategies for people, processes and technologies to ensure that valuable data assets are formally protected and managed throughout the organisation. Data is the Common Currency of Business and Customer Interaction.

When a major plant and seed retailer launched its first data quality programme, it found that 9% of its catalogues were being sent to deceased customers. It was wasting a significant element of its marketing budget and alienating potential customers from direct marketing targeted using poor quality data. Increasingly, the internet is the place where business is transacted, where people buy and sell things, and where relationships and networks are formed. All these activities depend on the effective creation, collection, storage and use of data. Data is the foundation of informed decision making; but only when the right data is in the right place at the right time.

Announcing new AI Capabilities for Power BI to make AI Accessible for Everyone

Power BI has been a pioneer in applying AI through capabilities such as natural language, which enables users to get answers by asking questions in plain English, or Quick Insights, which automatically finds patterns in data.

Today, Microsoft are taking a major step forward in bringing AI to business intelligence and announcing several new AI features in Power BI that are available in preview.
  • Users can now get capabilities such as image recognition and text analytics directly in Power BI.
  • Key driver analysis helps users understand what influences key business metrics.
  • Users can create machine learning models directly in Power BI using automated machine learning.
  • Users now have seamless integration of Azure Machine Learning within Power BI.

All these new AI capabilities—pioneered in Azure and now available in Power BI—require no code. This enables all Power BI users to discover hidden, actionable insights in their data and drive better business outcomes with easy-to-use AI.
