Comprehensive Course Description:
Do you want to master Business Intelligence (BI) tools? And gain in-depth knowledge of advanced techniques such as formatting dashboard and publishing the dashboard to the workspace. Or interested in just getting some hands-on experience in using Power BI and Tableau?
Then this course is for you!
Business intelligence, an umbrella term, covers different methods of gathering, storing, and analyzing data from business operations. This course has been designed in the same pattern. It starts with an introduction and overview of Business Intelligence. Then, you learn about the importance of Business Intelligence and its applications.
But without data analysis and visualization, Business Intelligence is incomplete. Hence, to become familiar with hands-on BI concepts, you learn statistical terminologies along with their practical explanation. This knowledge will give you the needed confidence when using any particular statistical measure in the workplace.
You implement Business Intelligence through its tools. These technology-driven business intelligence solutions are used for analyzing and visualizing raw data to present actionable information. BI combines business analytics, data visualization, and best practices that help you make decisions. You will learn two important, economical, user-friendly, and effective BI tools, Power BI and Tableau.
Power BI, a Microsoft product, analyzes and visualizes raw data and presents actionable information. This course provides you guidance from installation to Dashboard along with practical exercises, quizzes, and a project on Sales Dashboard that will help you practice it side by side to become an expert in Power BI.
Tableau, a visual analytics platform, transforms the way data is used to solve problems, empowering businesses to make the most of their data. In the course project, you design the Customer Analysis Dashboard with the help of our simple but comprehensive explanation.
You will not stop here. You will also receive invaluable guidance on career development in the last section. This will help you prepare for interviews for any BI role. Also, you learn about the market trend and will be fully prepared to go to the workplace. You will know all the essential BI concepts and practice them with confidence. On the whole, this is a MUST-take course if you want to enhance your career prospects.
