This course and its companion course, Foundations of Power BI – Data to Dashboard, have been superseded by Power BI for the Business Analyst Online.
This new course includes all of the videos and materials in both Foundations of Power BI and Extracting Data Insights, but also contains an expanded section on Power Query and includes bi-weekly live, online Q&A sessions for direct help with your questions. Plus, any new or updated content will only be available in this new course.
We highly recommend enrolling in Power BI for the Business Analyst Online instead of this course.
DAX, or Data Analysis eXpressions, is the data modeling language used by Power BI and Power Pivot for Excel. When you know how to write DAX formulas, you can access the hidden information from deep within the data, and then visualize your data in Power BI to extract the business value.
In this training course, you will learn everything you need to know to start your journey of extracting data insights from Power BI using the DAX language.
Everyone that is competent in Excel can learn how to become good at Power BI by learning and using DAX. But not all Power BI training is created equal. This course was developed by Matt Allington, a Microsoft MVP (Power BI), DAX expert, and author of the bestselling book Supercharge Power BI. It is a video version of the same training course that Matt has been delivering in Australia to live classes for more than 5 years.
Unlike some other learning resources, this course dives into the details of the DAX language, teaching you everything you need to know to get started on your journey to analyze your data using Power BI. DAX can be difficult to pick up and understand if you are trying to teach yourself. In this course you will get expert guidance direct from Matt Allington (one of the best DAX trainers in the business).
When you know how to write DAX (Data Analysis eXpressions) formulas, you can access the hidden information from deep within the data, and then visualize your data in Power BI to extract the business value. In this training course you will learn everything you need to know to start your journey of extracting data insights from Power BI using the DAX language.
This is a beginner’s course and doesn’t require any programming experience. It is recommended, however, that you have a solid understanding of Pivot Tables and/or how to use Power BI to visualize data that has been prepared for you by someone else. You should consider completing Matt’s companion course, Foundations of Power BI – Data to Dashboard, prior to beginning this course. (Although it is not mandatory, most people do both courses.)
