For many of us, our first version of a data analysis tool has been Excel. We have relied on its friendly grid to sort and organise data and share outcomes for many years, and we still do.

However, as data analytics and visualisation tools continue to evolve, we recognise that although Excel has its place, it does not always measure up to modern data visualisation and reporting tools.

So how do you know which tool is the best fit for the task at hand? Well, it depends.

In this webinar we look at use cases when Power BI is the better fit for the job.

Watch to learn about when Power BI delivers better outcomes than Excel and how to use your Excel skills to shorten your learning path of Power BI.



  • The benefits of Power BI vs Excel for reporting.
  • What to consider when making the choice of whether to use Power BI or Excel for reporting.
  • How to leverage your Excel skills to shorten your learning curve of Power BI.
  • The best of both tools: when you can benefit from using Power BI and Excel together.
