Sign up for the JBI Training newsletter to stay updated with world-class technology training opportunities, including Analytics, AI, ML, DevOps, Web, Backend and Security. Our Power BI Training Course is especially popular.  Gain new skills, useful tips, and validate your expertise with an industry-leading organisation, all tailored to your schedule and learning preferences.

Our Microsoft Business Intelligence (BI) training course puts this key technology into perspective and de-mystifies its complexity. The course covers the discovery and preparation of data, the modelling of the data, and the presentation of the data in insightful and attractive reports and dashboards.

We initially look at SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) in detail and can optionally run through a demo of Power BI to compare – when you return to the office, you will easily be able to create wonderful and informative reports and dashboards. The latter part of the course is spent on data warehousing and cube design with the modelling tools within SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) and with a little help from Integration Services (SSIS).

Both SSAS multidimensional and tabular models are covered – these are the power houses that drive your reports and dashboards.
