Event Name: Dashboard in a Day - TriBADD 2023

Theme: Dashboard in a Day using Power BI

Presentation Abstract:

In the current economic climate, you are being asked to enhance your business by leveraging data to make critical business decisions in an efficient, precise and effective manner. Power BI is a business analytics service that gives you a single view of your business data, with the ability to monitor the health of your business using live dashboards, create rich interactive reports and access your data on the go, from your mobile devices.
We are pleased to invite you to a workshop covering the capabilities of Power BI. The goal of this informational session is to help you understand how to analyze your data in a rich and compelling way. Whether you are evaluating its ability to meet organizational requirements around data visualization and analysis or are looking to learn how it can help you be more efficient and make a greater impact on the work you do every day, this is the workshop for you.
At the two ½ day sessions, attendees will better understand how to:

  • Connect to, import, and transform data from a variety of sources
  • Define business rules and KPIs
  • Explore data with powerful visualization tools
  • Build stunning reports
  • Share dashboards with their team and business partners, and publish them to the web

Prerequisites and setup steps
The following prerequisites and setup must be done for successful completion of the lab:
      • You must be connected to the internet.
      • You must have Microsoft Office installed.
      • You must be signed up for Power BI: Go to http://aka.ms/pbidiadtraining and sign up for Power BI with a business email address. If you cannot sign up for Power BI, let the instructor know. If you have an existing account, please use the same URL as above to log in.
      • You must have, at minimum, a computer with 2-cores and 4GB RAM running Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 R2, or later.
      • You will need to have Microsoft Edge.
      • You must verify if you have a 32-bit or a 64-bit operating system so you can install 32-bit or 64-bit applications.
Mac users will need to have full administrative access to a virtual windows desktop to install Power BI. There are steps in the labs that require Power BI desktop because Power BI service does not yet support certain functionality that will be needed in this course.
