About the Course
Power BI Desktop is a user-friendly tool created by Microsoft to “Enable everyone at every level of your organization to make confident decisions using up-to-the-minute analytics.” In the past, your data needed to be handed off to different departments and many times, by the time you received the answer, the question, and answers both had changed. Power BI allows you to work with your own data to get the answers you need quickly and easily.
