Mott MacDonald, Data Engineer:

"The 2-day Power BI course I attended was the best software training event I have attended. - The trainer, Jens, was obviously hugely passionate and knowledgeable about the software. ... Lunch at the local Italian restaurant in Bloomsbury was very nice too, lots of comments the portions were BIG....

The course also provided a huge reference manual for my future use and a support forum for 2 years which I anticipate will come in very useful as I already have a list of new questions to ask since completing the course.

This was my first foray into PBI and Grant was incredibly articulate and helpful- explained in detail and ensured all participated. I am grateful for his time and level of excellence. I am now more aware of PBI and look forward to taking my reports and presentations to a more visual connection with an audience. Absolute pleasure... Thank you.

Excellent trainer with broad knowledge and teaching skills. Only drawback was the projector which was at times a bit blurry and it was difficult to follow the formulas

Nadine Bailey,
Family Research Manager

The trainer was extremely knowledgeable, patient and accommodated all levels of experience within the session. I particularly liked the step by step work through of a premade topic. Often trainers think they will provide more value by going through a tangent question but the lack of structure then let's them down.

**WHY SHOULD YOU USE POWER BI FOR YOUR BUSINESS?**

Power BI is a powerful suite of business analytics tools that offer data visualization and insights. By connecting to various data sources, simplifying data preparation, and generating visually appealing reports, Power BI enables businesses to make better-informed decisions. Here's why leveraging data visualization with Power BI can benefit your business:

**Data Visualization**

Data visualization, including infographics, combines text and visualized data to present information in a visually engaging and effective manner. Infographics are proven to improve engagement and aid memory retention. As visual creatures, we process visual content much faster than text, making it more likely to be retained and understood.

**Import from Almost Any Data Source**

Power BI stands out among data visualization products due to its integration capabilities. It seamlessly integrates with various external data sources, such as Google Analytics, Salesforce, SharePoint, and many others. Its Open Database Connectivity function enables easy access to data from different online software service providers.

**A Brand New Visualization Engine**

Power BI boasts a state-of-the-art visualization engine. It features a new D3-based, HTML5 compliant engine that delivers stunning visualizations. Users can drill down into charts, explore different breakdowns, and even create complex moving visuals in 3D. The interface is intuitive and user-friendly.

**Open Source and Custom Visualizations**

Power BI offers a vast range of visualization techniques and options. It also provides the ability for developers to create and share their own custom visualizations, leading to an ever-expanding library of open-source visualizations. This fosters innovation and flexibility in presenting data.

**Power BI Mobile Apps**

Power BI recognizes the importance of mobile accessibility and has developed mobile apps for Apple, Android, and Windows mobile devices. These apps provide a seamless and convenient way to access and interact with Power BI dashboards and reports on the go.

**Integration with Excel and PowerPoint**

Power BI integrates with Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint, which are widely used tools for data analysis and presentations. While PowerPoint compatibility is still limited, integration with Excel is robust and seamless. As Power BI continues to evolve, further integration with Microsoft's core applications can be expected.

**Summary:**

Power BI training can greatly benefit businesses by leveraging its robust analysis and reporting tools. By utilizing data visualization, businesses can effectively communicate insights and make informed decisions. Power BI's ability to import data from various sources, its cutting-edge visualization engine, and its support for open source and custom visualizations provide flexibility and innovation in presenting data. Additionally, Power BI's mobile apps and integration with Excel and PowerPoint enhance accessibility and streamline workflows. By harnessing the power of Power BI, businesses can gain a competitive edge by making data-driven decisions and improving overall performance.
