Data Preparation & Modeling

The preparation phase is the most important step in data analysis. Before data can be effectively analyzed, an effective data model is required, and creating that data model may utilize a wide range of skills. This course teaches the skills needed to load, clean, and organize data in Power Query and create relational tables in Power Query and Power BI. After completing this course, students will be able to effectively source data in Power BI and create a clean and efficient data model for analysis.

The content covered in this course can help an enterprise to understand future risk, analyze different markets or make other decisions critical to an organization.
