Course Description

Introduction to Microsoft Excel Power Query, Data Model, Power Pivot and DAX is a highly recommended training course for individuals who want to get in-depth knowledge of handling significantly huge databases. This course introduces the most powerful data modelling and business intelligence tools. They are Power Query, Data Model, Power Pivot, and DAX (Data Analysis Expressions).

Why do we need Business intelligence (BI) tools?

A collection of tools and processes are required to gather data to turn it into meaningful information that people can use to make better decisions. Business Intelligence (BI) tools help in compiling and processing large groups of data and provide the required information for reporting, generating dashboards, and visuals.

Power Query

During the 2-day course, you will get hands-on with Power Query. Firstly, you will learn how to extract, cleanse, transform, and load data from flat files, folders, databases, and API services in the classes. Next, you will get the chance to practice shaping, blending, and exploring the project files. Thereafter, you will be confident to create automated loading procedures with just a few clicks.

Data Modelling & DAX

While moving forward in the course, we will be guiding you to dive into Data Modelling which focuses on databases relationships, cardinality, and hierarchies. We will show you how to explore Power Pivot and DAX to analyse the data model. Lastly, you will also learn the most powerful and commonly used functions such as – CALCULATE, FILTER, SUMX and many more.

Course Objectives

At the end of the Microsoft Excel Power Query, Data Model, Power Pivot and DAX course, you should be able to:

Create PivotTables with formulas with structure references and Splitting PivotTable into Multiple Worksheets

Have hands-on experience with Power Query; a tool that extracts, cleanses, transforms, and loads data from flat files, folders, databases and more. You’ll practise shaping, blending and exploring the project files, and create completely automated loading procedures with only a few clicks throughout the course.

Explore the Data Modeling and cover the fundamentals of database design and normalization 1

Explore Data Modelling and cover the fundamentals of database design and normalisation (including table relationships, hierarchies and more). You’ll take a tour through Excel’s data model interface, and then create your own relational database to analyse throughout the course.

Use Power Pivot and DAX to explore and analyze the data model.

Use Power Pivot and DAX to explore and analyse the data model. Unlike the traditional Pivot Table, Power Pivot allows you to analyse hundreds of millions of rows across multiple data tables, and create powerful calculated fields and measures using a formula language called Data Analysis Expressions (or “DAX” for short). Throughout the course, you’ll learn basic DAX syntax, then introduce some of the most commonly-used and powerful functions like CALCULATE, FILTER, SUMX and more.
