Power BI

Microsoft’s suite of Business Analytics tools, the core being Power BI Desktop and PowerBI.com (the cloud service) have developed at lightening pace since their release in early 2015.  In the process they have rocketed to a prominent position in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for BI  & Analytics Platforms.  Despite (or maybe because of) having been a long term user of Tableau in an Enterprise environment, I can see the huge potential of the platform; I love it!

TRAINING

The Power BI Documentation and Guided Learning materials are excellent, however there’s no replacement for bespoke training to suit your specific needs and having an experienced, patient person explain new concepts face-to-face.  I cover Technical and Data Visualisation best practice skills and techniques.


IMPLEMENTATION

I was responsible for implementing the Power BI instance in my current organisation. I have developed that process, learned from the experience and refined it to ensure successful use of Power BI in an Enterprise environment.


DEVELOPMENT

I have over 20 years development experience with reporting & analytical tools.  I cut my teeth with Excel and Access and then progressed through various other systems including Business Objects, Hyperion and SQL Server Reporting Services.  In 2012 I started developing Visual self-service Analytics with Tableau and have been developing solutions with Power BI since it’s Beta release in early 2015.
