Inhouse Seminar: Interactive Reporting with Power BI

With Power BI, Microsoft provides a software package for the implementation of modern reporting solutions. This includes the graphically supported analysis of large amounts of data as well as interactive reports and dashboards that work on the office screen and on mobile devices. So-called visuals are generated in Power BI on the basis of existing data sources. These are charts and tables with dynamic control options, similar to pivot tables in Excel. The variety and dynamics of the visuals offered bring many advantages but also new challenges. The art of the report designer is to use features sensibly and at the same time to communicate content clearly. This training focuses on the professional visualization of business data based on proven design rules and the technical possibilities of Power BI.
