Power BI is a business analytics service developed by Microsoft that allows users to visualize and analyze data from various sources to gain insights and make data-driven decisions. It is part of the Microsoft Power Platform, which also includes Power Apps and Power Automate.

Key features of Power BI include:

  1. Data Visualization: Power BI enables users to create interactive and visually appealing reports and dashboards using a wide range of customizable charts, graphs, and visuals. Users can drag and drop data elements onto the canvas to create compelling visualizations.

  2. Data Connectivity: Power BI can connect to a variety of data sources, including databases, spreadsheets, cloud services, and online services. Some common data sources include Excel, SQL Server, SharePoint, Azure, Salesforce, Google Analytics, and many more.

  3. Data Transformation: Power BI provides tools to clean, transform, and model data before visualization. Users can shape the data, apply data cleansing techniques, and create calculated columns and measures using DAX (Data Analysis Expressions).

  4. Data Refresh: Reports and dashboards can be set to refresh at regular intervals, ensuring that users always have access to the most up-to-date data.

  5. Sharing and Collaboration: Power BI allows users to share their reports and dashboards with others within their organization or externally. This collaboration feature enables teams to work together and make collective data-driven decisions.

  6. Mobile Support: Power BI offers mobile applications for iOS and Android devices, allowing users to access their reports and dashboards on the go.

  7. Natural Language Query (Q&A): With the Q&A feature, users can ask questions about their data in natural language and receive instant visual responses. This feature leverages natural language processing to understand user queries.

  8. Power Query: This component of Power BI allows users to extract, transform, and load data (ETL) from various sources before importing it into Power BI for visualization and analysis.

  9. Power BI Service: The Power BI Service is a cloud-based platform where users can publish, share, and collaborate on Power BI reports and dashboards with others in their organization.

  10. Power BI Desktop: Power BI Desktop is a Windows application that provides a more robust environment for creating complex reports and dashboards before publishing them to the Power BI Service.

Power BI comes in various licensing models, including Power BI Free, Power BI Pro, and Power BI Premium, each with different levels of functionality and data capacity.

Overall, Power BI is a powerful tool that enables organizations to turn data into actionable insights, facilitating better decision-making and performance monitoring.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
