Power BI is part of the suite of tools from Microsoft which enable data to be analysed and visualised from a variety of sources.

With Power BI Desktop, you get a report authoring tool that enables you to connect to and query data from different sources using the Query Editor. From the datasets you can add visuals and create interactive reports.

In this half day taster session, attendees will learn how to connect Excel workbooks to Microsoft Power BI Desktop. You will carry out basic data modelling in the data using the Query Editor and then add visuals to a report.
