Introducing Microsoft Power BI – Free ebook from SQLBI

Introducing Microsoft Power BI is a book that covers the basics of the tool and, at the same time, shows you what the main capabilities of Power BI are. The first chapters are similar to a step-by-step guide to start using the service, but the goal is also to show you all available features and the business scenarios covered by them.

This book is targeted to a variety of readers. There are information workers and people who are totally new to the BI world. For those readers, the book acts as a simple introduction to the concepts that are the foundation of BI. Yet, another target category is that of IT professionals and database administrators who might need to drive the decisions of the company in adopting Power BI, because their users are asking for it. For them, this book acts as both a simple introduction to the basic concepts, explaining why users are so interested in Power BI, and as an overview of the capabilities and tools available in Power BI, so that readers can make educated choices in adopting it.

Book content:

  • Introducing Power BI
  • Sharing the dashboard
  • Understanding data refresh
  • Using Power BI Desktop
  • Getting data from services and content packs
  • Building a data model
  • Improving Power BI reports
  • Using Microsoft Power BI in your company
