Power BI: Analysing and visualising data 101
9.00am - 4.30pm

How Big data can help your business. Self-service business intelligence. Data visualisation for easy snapshots. Real-time analytics. 

So much data and so many buzz words, but what does it all mean? As data gets easier to come by, we find ourselves with more data than we know what to do with and need to analyse it quickly and effectively. We don’t have time to wait for the data scientists to come back with a robust report, we need answers now.

This workshop will introduce you to Microsoft’s Power BI tool for analysing and visualising data, bringing business intelligence capabilities into your hands. In this hands on workshop, you will explore the capabilities of Power BI and discover how it can help your company get real insights and valuable information from your data.
