About this workshop series

Power BI is Microsoft self-service business analytics and data visualization tool that delivers deep insights to enable fast, informed decisions. Power BI is recognized as a leader in Analytics and Enterprise BI platforms. Gartner recognizes Microsoft as a Leader in the Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms Magic Quadrant for the twelfth consecutive year. Forrester recognizes Microsoft as a Leader in the Forrester Wave™: Enterprise BI Platforms (Vendor-Managed), Q3 2019.

During this two-day bootcamp, you will learn the fundamental skills to know how to use Power BI to build highly interactive visualization and dashboards form end to end; getting the data from various sources, data preparation, data cleansing, data modelling and relationships, adding measures and calculations, visualization, explore data and get insights and eventually purplish and share dashboards.

You will also learn about the emerging role of Citizen Data Scientist as defined by Gartner as “A person who creates machine learning model that use advanced diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive capabilities, but whose primary job function is outside the field of statistics and data science.

Gartner predicts that 40% of data science tasks will be automated by 2020 and as a result the number of Citizen Data Scientists will grow five times faster than the number of expert data scientists to fill the data science and machine learning talent gap caused by the shortage and high cost of data scientists. Citizen Data Scientists will surpass data scientists in the amount of advanced analysis produced.


Day 1: 6 Hrs. Visual Analytics – Prepare, Model, Visualize and Explore Data

  • Access data from different sources using Power Query
  • Prepare, clean and manipulate your data
  • Build the data model and relationships
  • Enhance data model through DAX columns and measures
  • Get insights through advanced visual analytics capabilities
  • Visualize, explore, publish and share dashboards 

    Day 2: 6 Hrs. Data Science – Machine Learning and AI Cognitive Services
