Our business intelligence specialists invite you to attend a Power BI/DIAD (Dashboard in a Day) workshop taking place at Microsoft’s offices in Montreal. Power BI is an analytics tool that enables businesses to mine their data more easily and intuitively. Organizations store a wealth of information, and decision-makers are often faced with the considerable challenge of deriving conclusions from it to make sound business decisions that will ensure optimal results.
EXIA has been mandated to lead this one-day informational workshop touching on all Power BI functionalities. The goal of the activity is to help you understand how to analyze your data efficiently to make decision-making easier. If you would like to assess just how well this tool can meet your data visualization and analysis needs, this training session is for you. Participating business representatives are invited to bring their data (in CSV or Excel format) since the last two hours of the day will be devoted to practical exercises focused on creating reports and dashboards.The Power BI tool offers multiple possibilities, allowing you to monitor the health of your business through interactive reports and dashboards. In the current economic environment, businesses need to make informed strategic decisions—because these decisions are crucial and always carry a major financial burden that businesses cannot ignore. This solution has proven results and can help you to be more efficient while maximizing productivity in your organization.
At the end of the workshop, participants will have learned how to:
- Access data from various sources with the aim of importing or transforming them.
- Define administrative rules and key performance indicators.

Here are a few photos of the Power BI training session that took place on February 19 in Microsoft’s offices in Montreal. Power BI is a commercial analytics tool that offers interactive visualizations and business intelligence functionalities. Its simple interface allows users to create their own reports and dashboards.
Possessing many years of experience, our business intelligence specialists are highly committed and take pleasure in sharing their technical knowledge. Some 40 business participants who wished to develop their skills of the Power BI tool attended the workshop.
Our labs are devoted entirely to this tool, which is becoming increasingly popular in the business world. Our workshops comprise both a theoretical and hands-on component, allowing participants to develop their skills by working on actual cases with data specific to their company. Given the technical aspect of the Power BI tool, and the varying skills levels of the group, a one-on-one support service is also offered during our workshops so as to personalize and adapt the training content to each participant’s level.
Another lab is planned for March 27, 2019 and other dates will also be confirmed shortly. For more information on our upcoming workshops in Microsoft’s offices in Montreal, click on Power BI.Read more
