Microsoft Power BI is a comprehensive business intelligence (BI) platform designed to empower organizations to extract maximum value from their data. It transforms raw data into interactive and visually compelling insights, facilitating informed decision-making at all levels.

Organizations can empower their workforce to achieve significant success through Power BI training. This training equips employees with data analysis skills, enabling them to:

  • Make informed decisions: Data becomes the driving force behind every level, fostering better choices.

  • Boost productivity: Employees empowered to analyze data independently contribute to a more productive environment.
  • Gain a competitive advantage: Data-driven insights fuel strategic business decisions.

Successful completion of the Microsoft Power BI BootCamp and Advanced Courses prepares participants to write the PL-300: Microsoft Power BI Data Analyst Exam.

Please note that Power BI is a Microsoft app and as such, it is not designed to work on a MacBook.  PowerBI Desktop is a Windows-only app. So Mac users will have to use parallels. You cannot use a laptop that does not have Windows installed.  If you only have a MacBook to work on and you want to do the course, we can hire a laptop for you to use at your own cost.  Please speak to your salesperson to assist you.
