Business Intelligence with Power BI
In a rapidly evolving economy, organisations are constantly forced to change and react quickly to new trends and developments. Microsoft Power BI is a reporting tool designed to allow organisations to gain objective insight into their own functioning and to optimise it using data-driven management.
With this practical manual you can quickly create attractive, comprehensive dashboards that offer insight into the results of your various business units, whether it be sales, customer services, logistics, finances, or HR.
Our ‘Learn-Do-Experience’ method provides a step-by-step understanding of the software and of data-driven management itself, guiding you as you learn to compile ever more complex reports. Throughout this book, we also offer easily downloadable case studies and examples. Additionally, Power Query and DAX are explained, as well as ways to publish and share reports.
This book is aimed at professionals (such as business controllers, accountants, analysts, CIOs, IT managers and marketeers) and students enrolled in course programmes like business management or any other courses with an analytical and data-driven approach.
