The big data revolution continues to grow exponentially. As companies continue to generate more and more data about absolutely every business transaction they can track. Add this to the volume of data created by devices connected to the internet. Consequently, you begin to appreciate the universal need for more efficient data visualisation tools.

Above all, it's important that decision makers not only have access to the data but it's presented in a way that they understand. Data visualisations in the form of dashboards and reports need to be developed in a way that those throughout the company, across departments and even across international borders can understand. Therefore, they can utilise the data if they need to. Consequently, Microsoft’s Power BI toolkit is designed to accomplish just this. To put big data into more manageable sized chunks.

What is Microsoft Power BI?

Power BI is Microsoft’s suite of business analytics tools. The suite allows the user to develop insights throughout their organisation. Power BI can connect to hundreds of data sources including third party content packs and this number is increasing daily. It allows you to produce beautiful reports and publish them for your organisations viewing. Power BI also supports mobile devices.

Why does Microsoft Power BI matter?

Without the ability to regularly transform big data into actionable intelligence that enterprise decision makers can use, success would be very hard to come by. Power BI provides the best and intuitive tools for transforming raw data into actionable reports, dashboards which can be shared and collaborated on.

Who does Microsoft Power BI affect?

Almost anyone who works in business can benefit from the tools available in Power BI. Everyone from project managers to the CEO can use Power BI’s intuitive data visualisation tools to communicate important information between departments in a manner that is easy to understand.

Thanks Michael, you were patient and happy to go back over knowledge whenever people needed it. I love how excited you got over some of the technical aspects - they were really interesting!

The topics chosen were very useful. I especially think the If statements, vlook up, pivot table and flash fill will work well for me in the future. Michael was very helpful and always stopped to assist those who needed further info. He was also happy to answers questions in general related to excel. Potentially needed some polls or questions within the training to check learning and understanding. -Excel Intermediate Sydney
