Event Details

 

Are you responsible for the generation of financial reports, either on a regular or ad hoc basis? Do you sometimes struggle to quickly obtain accurate data for month-end reports? Does it sometimes take you days to produce month end or other financial or operational reporting?

If so, join our 2-day Training Class and get fully up to speed on Power BI – the latest self-service BI application from Microsoft. Power BI is a cloud-based business analytics service that enables anyone to visualise and analyse data with greater speed, efficiency, and understanding.

 It connects users to a broad range of data through easy-to-use dashboards, interactive reports, and compelling visualisations that bring data to life. It also provides almost instant access to a wide selection of data sources, including AX, NAV, CRM Online, Excel and the Internet of Things.

 For a special one-off cost of just £500, you will learn how to:

  • Visualise and analyse all your data in one place

     

  • Use natural language to request the right charts and graphs

     

  • Stop searching for data and instead explore it through a drag-and-drop canvas

     

  • Transform ROI by discovering and acting upon great opportunities

     

  • Publish reports and financial packs

     

  • Build and share interactive dashboards

     

  • Combine multiple data sources

     

  • Build custom data models from on-premise and cloud data

In this shared training environment with your peers, you will learn best-practice on how to provide relevant and timely information across your business to those who need it most – with supreme confidence that the reports truly represent the underlying data in the ledgers.

At the end of the course, you will be able to take control of the creation and dissemination of sensitive financial information to those entitled to view it. You will master the techniques to provide relevant and timely information so that your business can make decisions quickly and with confidence.

Familiarity with Microsoft Dynamics financials is beneficial, but not essential for this course.
