Power BI – From Personal BI to Personal Data Science

Microsoft states that Power BI is “a cloud-based business analytics service that enables anyone to visualize and analyze data with greater speed, efficiency, and understanding” Does this mean Power BI Desktop can also be used for more than just building pretty dashboards? In this session we’ll explore how Power BI can not only be used to democratize BI across the enterprise, but also to democratize Data Science across the enterprise. An introduction to the general Data Science process is included, so no previous knowledge is required.
