Power BI Desktop is part of the suite of tools from Microsoft which enable data to be analysed and published from a variety of sources.

With Power BI Desktop, you get a report authoring tool that enables you to connect to and query data from different sources using the Query Editor. From the datasets you build with Query Editor you can create reports and add visuals within Power BI Desktop. Reports can then be published.

This course covers the use of Power BI Desktop to connect to data, query the data, add visuals and prepare to publish a report.

Please Note: This course does not cover the use of Power BI in the Power BI Service.
