What is Power BI?

Power BI is Microsoft’s cloud-based business intelligence technology and a part of the Office 365 suite. The service allows users to visualize, analyze, and aggregate data with greater speed and understanding. You can get a 360-degree view of your business from one easy to use dashboard which allows you to monitor your data in real time. Sharing reports and dashboards with others is easy.

What we learned:

Stephanie had this to say about the event, “We were able to work together through multiple guided modules, and after cleaning and exploring the data, we created a live dashboard and learned various ways of authoring reports. The visualizations were so simple to create and work with, it was a breeze. Having the ability to create mobile apps in just a few minutes was a really interesting feature too. Power BI is extremely user friendly with intuitive tools that can be learned quickly and easily. We had a great time learning, and I look forward to using this product for future projects!”
