Last week, I posted part two of our Power BI Primer series discussing administration of Power BI Sites and user permissions.  Today, we’re bringing you Part Three.
If you are an Office365 customer, then you have almost certainly heard about (if not seen) Power BI.
The cloud-based analytics and collaboration platform from Microsoft has some pretty amazing features, and really extends the Microsoft BI platform not only into the cloud but into a more self-service oriented mode.   However, one of the challenges to getting up and running on Power BI has been, well, knowing how to get up and running!
And that’s where we come in.
Perficient has created a 4-part video series that provides step-by-step instructions for getting your Power BI instance working for you.  From getting your Power BI Site set up, to administering it, and connecting your Power BI workbooks to on-premises data sources — this series has got you covered!
So let’s take a look at Part 3:  Power BI Data Exploration and Visualization

This video jumps into the fun part: exploring and working with data, and building visualizations.  We will dive into pulling data from a primary source into Power Pivot, and also into making reports with Power View
Next time we’ll wrap up this series by talking about bringing things full circle and connecting to an on-premises data source from your O365 Power BI Site.  Cheers!
