Power Up

Utilise Power BI to unlock business insights. Learn how to build dashboards and connect to your data.


Day 1 & 2

Get started with Power BI. Discover the different tools of Power BI, and how you can use it to create reports, analyse data and develop interactive dashboards.

In this instructor-led training, you will complete hands-on activities as you learn how to:

  • Import, shape and transform your data.
  • Create a data model.
  • Use Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) to create custom measures for analysis.
  • Create graphs and visualisations to present business data.
  • Use Power BI Service to publish dashboards, share business insights and ask questions about your data.

By the end of 2-day training, you will be equipped with the basic skills to create impressive reports and dashboards with ease.


Who Should Attend?

This course is for suitable for people who want to learn how to use Power BI to explore data and build dashboards to gain business insights. No prior analytics or Power BI experience required.

 

What to Bring?

For the training, we will provide you with desktops to use with Power BI installed, as well as a USB to take your work back to your office. However, if you wish to bring your own laptop, please ensure it has sufficient permissions to install the Power BI Desktop software. Some organisations lock down installation permissions on their PCs so you may need to work with your IT department and pre-install the Power BI Desktop software prior to the training.

If you use Windows 10, we recommend installing Power BI from the Windows Store. Alternatively, you can download Power BI Desktop here.

Next Steps

After completing this 2-day introductory course, you will have the skills necessary to attend the following training session, Power BI Hack Day. During the Hack day, you will work alongside our GP and SunSystems* Consultants to apply the Power BI skills you have learned to your own project using your business data. This is a great opportunity to exchange ideas and share experiences with users from other companies.

Register for the Hack Day here.

*Unless you're an experienced Power BI user, you must attend the 2-day introductory training to be able to attend the Hack Day.

*Experienced Power BI users may elect to attend the Hack Day only.

**The Hack Day is primarily aimed at Dynamics GP and Infor SunSystems users as we will have Application Consultants present to assist with specific table and data questions. However, if you are accessing other systems and have attended the training or are wanting to improve your Power BI skills, you are welcome to attend. The Melbourne Hack Day will be primarily for Dynamics GP users only.
