Microsoft Power BI is a self-service business intelligence (BI) solution delivered through Excel and Office 365 that provides information workers with data analysis and visualization capabilities. Power BI lets customers connect to data in the cloud or extend their existing on premise data sources and systems.

In this set of sessions, you'll learn about all the Power BI components, how to configure Power BI for Office 365, and how to integrate with both cloud and on premise systems. We'll also take a look at some of the upcoming Power BI features expected to release in late 2014.

By the end of this course you will:

  • Understand the key Power BI components delivered in Excel and Office 365, and how they work together to support the self-service BI lifecycle.
  • Learn how to setup, configure, and administrate a Power BI for Office 365 environment
