  • Power BI account.

An outline of this training course

This course covers in detail the query editor and how to develop effective Power BI data models. When starting out with Power BI you can sometimes overlook how important these two areas inside of Power BI are to developing an effective reporting solution. This course makes sure that you can see the immense value of doing work in these areas right can be. Covered are intermediate to advanced techniques that will enable you to optimize your raw data tables and then connect them into a functioning analytical model that you can ultimately overlay DAX formula to and get the correct results, that will answer your analytical questions.

“From my first days working with Power BI. Sam and Enterprise DNA has been my go-to people for learning about how to do things in Power BI. From modeling to DAX, visualizations to formatting, and publishing reports to creating dashboards and apps.” – Ian Besmond

“I have trawled the internet and tried at least 3 Power BI courses. This is the first one that includes a methodology for Data Modeling and analytics that is intuitive and makes sense. I went from very basic knowledge of Power BI to comfortable with the concept of DAX and setting up attractive reports in 1 day. A course cannot get better than that!”     – Karl Griffin

“Sam – you have built an incredible community of people who have become passionate about Power BI. Your videos (both publicly available and commercially available by subscription) are an invaluable tool to BI users at all levels. I learned a ton about proper data modeling for analytics, DAX complex queries, using M-Query, organizing information properly, and much more. I highly recommend the membership – it has proven to be a prudent investment.” – Tiran
