Business Intelligence (BI) is perhaps the hottest topic in most professional circles in today’s business climate.

You will then learn how to leverage that knowledge to build even more powerful BI objects using Microsoft’s Power BI tools. If gaining better insights into your data to make better decisions interests you, then join us for a fast-paced look at how you can take advantage of these fantastic tools.
