Introduction to Microsoft Power BI

$99.00

Power BI is a member of the Power Platform.  Power Apps is another component that enables everyone to build and use apps that connect to business data. This course will show you how to use the Power Apps visual to pass context-aware data to a canvas app, which updates in real-time as you make changes to your report. This will allow your app users to derive business insights and take actions from right within their Power BI reports and dashboards.  Finally, this course will explore the intersections between Power BI and Microsoft’s enterprise-level data modeling and analysis platform, SQL Server Analysis Services.
