- [Instructor] For nearly a decade, Microsoft's preeminence in analytics and business intelligence are because of Microsoft Power BI, a suite of powerful tools designed to be accessible for business users. Microsoft Power BI Desktop is the data modeling workhorse in this suite, a free application that allows you to connect to hundreds of data sources, transform, shape and relate your data to build a data model, create visually rich interactive reports, then share those reports and your data models with others in the enterprise. Learning Power BI Desktop gives you an edge over those who are trying to model and visualize data using tools that are less powerful or more difficult to use. Please join me as we explore using Power BI Desktop to make a positive impact for you, your team and your organization.
