Summary

As of 2019, Microsoft’s Power BI is the leading analytics and business intelligence platform available on mobile applications, clouds, on-premise data gateway, data-modeling applications, report-authorizing applications, and other utilities. 

This audiobook offers a comprehensive analysis of the powerful tools and features contained in Power BI’s arsenal. It includes the stepwise directions on how to start a Power BI project and how to share the project with a large number of users. As a listener, the audiobook will get you familiarized with the basic concepts of Power BI and how its datasets, dashboards, and reports can be used to give insights and interactive experiences. 

This audiobook will help you become conversant with management techniques and administration topics available on Power BI. With the knowledge acquired in the audiobook, you will be able to utilize Power BI’s powerful features and carry out successful Power BI projects for your organization. Some of the topics covered in the audiobook include: 

  • Introduction to Power BI 
  • Dashboard sharing on Power BI 
  • Loading of data from different data sources into Power BI 
  • Data transformation 
  • Data modeling

Combined together the tutorial topics listed above make a practical and potent beginner's guide. The flow of the audiobook is designed for the listeners to follow and apply the instructions given as they are listening along. The approach is meant to encourage the listener not only to visualize, but also actualize the step-by-step form of instructions given in the audiobook. 

Thanks to Power BI, Excel can also analyze and prepare large amounts of data. With this audiobook, you get everything you need for everyday work: comprehensive and understandable explanations based on clear, practical scenarios. I will show you how to handle raw data from different data sources and how to clean, link, analyze, and visualize them. You will find out how you can efficiently combine functions with Power Query, Power Pivot, Power BI Desktop, and how to use business intelligence profitably for your company! 

It is aimed at any professional who needs to report and perform data analysis efficiently. You do not need to have an analyst position in your work portfolio. Even if you already have experience with Power BI, you are sure to get important resources out of this audiobook. 

As I mentioned above, in this audiobook, you will learn the data analysis process using Power BI functions and tools, from how to install and how to schedule automatic updating of your reports to perform analytics. 

As with every new skill, learning Power BI requires some effort. I have structured the audiobook in such a way that you can master and apply everything in the audiobook in a systemic way. 

Once complete, you’ll be able to use this knowledge in your company and reap the results of high-quality reports, thus ensuring recognition and safety in your field. 

You will learn how to manage the data sources in Power BI, Q&A for Natural Language Query, Power BI Architecture, Publishing and Scheduling Reports, etc. The audiobook has individual chapters for Power BI Desktop functionalities, Power BI real-time dashboard, Report Generation and Mail, Dynamic low-level security, Toggle buttons, Tooltip features, and more. 

This audiobook will help you learn the navigation pane, dashboard tiles, designer files, sorting data, scheduling automatic refreshes, and report generation using visualization. You will get to learn exciting details on how to integrate Power BI with SharePoint and Dynamics 365 with a detailed description. After learning the above, you will be able to create a Power BI report and publish them on SharePoint easily.

Very practical and very thorough

I was a Pivot Table novice when I started this course but with just a few lessons I was becoming more and more confident at using Pivot Tables.

Daniel's teaching style is engaging. His explanation is clear and in-depth as he covers all the Pivot Table features. There are plenty of exercise files and real-life homework activities to practice the skills learned.

I can now say with confidence that I am an advanced Excel & Pivot Table user to my colleagues, boss, and future employers.

Thanks, Daniel for this comprehensive course, and I am forever indebted to you. Keep up the awesome work you do.
