Introduction to Data Visualization and Power BI

Power BI is a tool which is widely used for data visualizations, storytelling and analytics. This module takes you through the journey of how it all began and what constitutes analytics and business intelligence along with the strength of how Power BI bridges the gap between users and business insights.

Importing and Shaping Data

Before using any tool for data visualization and analytics, it is important to be data literate, understand the nature of the data, what the data consists of and also defining the format of the data to make it suitable for analytics. Along with the above, we need to ensure that the business case is well defined. We will go through how the above can be ensured as part of this module.

Visualizations and Visual Interactions

In this module, we will first understand what are the different types of possible visualizations and the business insights that could potentially be obtained from each type of chart/graph. It is important to understand what each visualization signifies in order to make the right choice while building a report/dashboard.

Working with Filters

While working with data and visualizations, it is very important to be able to narrow down what you see to make information easier to decipher. Filtering is an operation which helps you do that. This section deals with all possible and right ways to apply filters to data.

Building Reports with Advanced Visualizations

There could be cases where users would require plotting multiple dimensions in a visualization. For such cases we would need to look towards more advanced visualizations. This module covers some of those visualizations and how one can choose the right visualization when needs to be plotted.

In order to present our findings, we need to put everything together to form meaningful visualizations which can give us valid and important business insights. This section deals with how we can put various visualizations together to form a report.
