Demand for data visualisation skills is showing no signs of slowing. There are many BI tools available, and this can make knowing which one to learn overwhelming.
Global research and advisory firm, Gartner, has recognised Power BI as the Magic Quadrant Leader in analytics and business intelligence platforms for 13 consecutive years.
This is just one of many reasons you should learn how to build Power BI dashboards and reports like the ones below:
Tip: click the bars/columns/lines/labels in the charts to interact with the report and trigger cross filtering and highlighting.
Tip: use the < and > in the navigation bar at the bottom of the report to switch between report pages.
Mac Users: the Power BI Desktop app used to build the reports and dashboards is not available for Mac. However, you can view completed Power BI reports and dashboards using the online Power BI Service or mobile app, and depending on your dataset, in some cases you can author reports in the Power BI service.
