This Jump Start Will Change the Way You See Data

Matthew Calder (MVA)

As a data buff, I’m really excited about this upcoming course for anyone who’s all about data discovery, visualization, and collaboration. If you're trying to make sense of piles of data, and you're an Excel power user, get ready for Power BI for Office 365 and the new tools that will enable you to provide faster insights to your organization. This demo-rich Jump Start will teach you about Power Query, Power Map, and natural language querying. This live session provides a full-day drilldown into Power BI features and capabilities, led by the team of Microsoft experts who own them.

If you want to see Power BI in action today, check out the Power BI Demo contest entries. I’m still boggling over the implications of the UFO reporting demo. Watching California take the lead over time in UFO sightings wasn’t surprising, but what is going on here in Washington that has us coming in second? After I take this course, I hope to be able to dig in and find out. The truth is out there … in the data.
