In today’s fast-paced business world, making sense of vast amounts of data can be challenging. That’s where data visualisation comes in – a world where numbers don’t just sit there but tell compelling stories. I have been using Power BI for around 5 years now and every time I run training courses on it people are astonished by what it can do. We have just launched a brand new Power BI Advanced Training course and would love to share why I think it is such an amazing tool, let me show you…
Why Power BI, You Ask?
Let me take you back to my humble beginnings with Excel, a tool I hold very dear. Excel is fantastic for crunching numbers, but when it comes to making those numbers pop and speak to you, Power BI is the tool you want, it is just incredible. They say, “A picture paints a thousand words” and in the realm of data, this is definitely true. Give me a list of numbers and it is hard to work out what they are saying. Transform those digits into graphs, gauges, or maps, and you have got yourself a captivating story.
Imagine you have a target you need to meet and want to be able to easily show how far off you are. In Excel, it’s a sea of numbers. However in Power BI you can show a dynamic gauge that fills up inch by inch as you edge closer to your goal, vividly showcasing your journey to success.
