Summary

Big data applications are infiltrating businesses of all sizes at high speed, and this is

mainly being driven by a set of emerging tools that make developing such applications

easy. This seminar provides a hands-on introduction to one such tool, Microsoft Power

BI, which has been developed with Excel users in mind. Power BI should be in the

toolbox of every CPA! You do not need to be an IT specialist to learn it! This seminar

will provide a good understanding of what Power BI can do for you and it will help

you get started with your own projects.

Objectives

* Get familiar with the Power BI interface: How does everything fit together?

* Learn how to extract, integrate, and clean data from a variety of data sources

* Learn how to calculate information needed for analysis and decision making

Highlights

* Get exposed to Power BI - the "next generation" Excel

* Learn the importance of extracting and cleaning data by means of hands-on

applications

* Build interactive dashboards in no time
