Bridging Big Data Analytics Using Power BI
In today’s corporate environment, fact based data plays a big part in shaping key business decisions. Reports, spreadsheets and slide decks jostle for space in our email inboxes, demanding for our attention as part of our decision making process. Are you finding it difficult to locate what you need? Or are you feeling swamped by the huge volume of reports to be analyzed before writing proposals to your bosses? Our 1-day ‘Bridging Big Data Analytics Using Power BI’ course can help you streamline your data analysis process.
So what can Power BI do for you? Power BI allows you to combine unrelated sources of data into interactive insights. You can transform endless rows and columns of numbers and words into colourful and visually appealing graphics that make your data narratives more impactful to the reader. You can also set up alerts for yourself when data changes at the backend or set up automated reports to yourself via email at regular time intervals to be notified of the latest data trends. This will allow you to stay abreast of changes and amend your presentations in good time.
You can also share your data sources with anyone who needs access to them. Open up the Power BI service interface on your browser or mobile device and you and your colleagues will be able to work on the same dashboards and reports that update and refresh automatically to ensure that you are constantly working on the latest available data inputs.
Power BI also helps you remove any fear that tinkering on your end will affect original datasets and shared content. You can have greater peace of mind knowing that you can either choose to save your view of content or revert to the original default data view with the click of a button at anytime you want. This is possible even after you filter, slice or export the data at your disposal on your browser.
