Learn how to connect and transform your data with Power BI Desktop, Microsoft's powerful data analysis and visualization software.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Gini Courter. In this course I'll show you how to use Power BI Desktop, including Desktop Pro, the offline design tools for Power BI data sets, reports, and dashboards. We'll begin with a quick overview of business intelligence, including Power BI's place in that, and then we'll begin using Power BI Desktop to get, model, visualize and publish data and reports that you can share with your colleagues.
We'll connect to data from files, databases, the web, even from Facebook, use the query editor to shape and transform our data model, create multipage reports using graphs, text-based tiles, maps and slicers, then publish it all on the Power BI service at PowerBI.com so we can share it. We have a lot to do. Let's get started.
