A Day of Power BI: Designing Dashboard Solutions from Beginning to End


Session Details:

Designing dashboards is about far more than just developing visuals like charts, gauges, and maps. To start any Power BI project you must first define your source. This means not only connecting to your data but also applying business logic to cleanse your data as you import it. After importing your data sources you will then create a data model to build relationships between tables and write DAX calculations. Finally, you're ready to visualize the results and share with others! Learn all these things and more in this hands-on full day pre-con.  Topics will include:

·  Data Import Strategies

·  Designing Data Models

·  Building DAX Calculations

·  Designing Effective Reports

·  Deploying and Sharing Dashboards

·  Scheduling Data Refreshes
