Excel BI for Analysts

Description of training

When Microsoft noticed that the world of processing, analysis and visualisation of data leaves them behind, it has started working on the missing elements for Excel users. In this way, a large range of FREE ADD-INS appeared, of which most of us – Excel users – have no idea, and which can solve many of our everyday problems. From the time of running it, Microsoft refers to its Excel as BI. In their arsenal every analyst has a possibility to download and process the data automatically using Power Query, build a data model using Power Pivot and visualise it using Power BI and Power Map. During the training the users will learn what their practical applications are and how they save us time.

Aim of the training

Learn how to use Excel add-ins, like Power Query, Power Pivot, Power Map, and Power BI app, in practice.

Participants will learn:

  • How to automate the process of data processing using Power Query
  • How to build your own data model with measures, which are not available in a standard pivot table, using Power Pivot
  • How to present graphic data on a report (Power BI) and on maps (Power Map)


Participants learn how to build automated reporting environment in Excel which allows us to review, update and distribute report in a very quick way. The training consists of plenty of practical exercises based on the most popular reporting challenges.

Training form:

The training takes place online or on-site in the ordering company’s office or any place chosen by it. A coordinator from the ordering company chooses a group of participants not larger than 15 people. The participants should have Power BI installed. The training lasts 2 or 3 days (each day lasting 7 hours).
