This webinar was held on 30 July 2020. Business intelligence tools are beginning to transform how we deliver projects. Within this webinar we provided some tips on how to get started and help to demonstrate the art of the possible. 

Business intelligence tools offer the potential to transform the role of many project delivery professionals. From integrating and cleaning up data through to the creation of automated reports and predictive insights. But this is just the tip of the iceberg!

We provided an overview of the different capabilities on offer then drilled down into how to get started on PowerBI. We directed you to resources and provided some tips and tricks.

We then created a report to show you how easy it is.

We opened your minds to the full potential, explaining about some of the custom visuals, what DAX can do for you and how Python can help.

We provided a few useful cases and helped to show the art of the possible.

We also explained some of the pitfalls to avoid.
