Power BI can be a powerful tool for any departments within your organization. In this webinar Vivek Patel will walk us through how to
Experience Your Data: Any Data, Anyway, Anywhere. How to migrate your existing Analysis/reports to Power BI, and how to take your current Power BI reports to the next level using latest features. Power BI lets you reduce risks, increase rewards, and unlock insights to drive more informed decisions for every department.

Data is everywhere. The world contains an astronomical amount of data, an amount that grows larger and larger each day. This vast collection of information has changed the way the world interacts, uncovered breakthroughs in medicine, and revealed new ways to understand trends in business and in our daily lives. With the increasing availability of data comes new challenges and opportunities as business leaders seek to gain important insights and transform information into actionable and meaningful results.

As data becomes more accessible, manipulating vast amounts of available data to drive insights and make business decisions can be a challenge. Business leaders at every level need to become data literate and be able to understand data and analytical concepts that may have previously seemed out of reach, including statistical methods, machine learning, and data manipulation. With this spread of data literacy comes the powerful ability to make educated business decisions that rely on the smart use of data, rather than on an individual’s opinions. In the past, these tasks were extremely complex and would be handed off to engineers. With the tools that exist today, business leaders are able to dive into their own analytics and uncover powerful insights. Microsoft Power BI brings advanced analytics to the daily business decision process, allowing users to extract useful knowledge from data to solve business problems.
