Overview

In order to survive and excel in today’s competitive market, executives, senior managers and managers
need to make smarter decisions based on better information. The major challenge faced today is being
able to decipher what information is correct and why! Too much time is wasted searching, collecting and
sorting data. Using Power BI correctly enables busy executives to invest their most sparse resource, that
is their time, on analysing the correct information in the right format at the right time. During this
masterclass, we will introduce you to the concepts that you need to know to make effective use of Power
BI to combine data from multiple disparate source systems, cleanse and transform the data, and enrich
the data with appropriate business logic and calculations allowing you to extract valuable insights from
your data. We will then teach you how to easily create interactive reports and dashboards from that data,
and finally how you share and manage your reporting content.
