In this workbook/guide, we will explain Power BI features that can be used to create a Dashboard of different Visual Reports. We will take students through a step-by-step process displaying all major capabilities. The final step will require posting the Dashboard on the internet to be shared with others.
Power BI is integrated with Excel and evolved from Excel Add-Ins including PowerPivot, PowerQuery, PowerView, and PowerMap. You will see many similarities in Excel and Power BI, but the features in Power BIare much better integrated with many different data sources. Power BI is the next step in analyzing information and integrating data. However, Excel is still needed to build mathematical formulas as well as build charts and PivotTables. Power BI can also be used provide analysis from a Dashboard technology perspective.
