Data Storytelling with Power BI


What Will You Learn?

  • To have the ability to significantly enhance the analytical value of data models with DAX calculations
  • To develop a strong understanding of advanced DAX concepts and learn to think like DAX
  • To understand when and how to use the more advanced DAX functions



Power BI has many features that are appealing but clearly the storytelling capabilities are what set it apart from other BI tools.  Features like bookmarks, tool-tip report pages, and drill-through filters are just a few examples of how you can make dull reports a real interactive experience.  This course dives deep into advanced design patterns required for telling stories in Power BI.
