Say goodbye to the days of relying on IT departments for imperfect reports. With Power BI, you can take control of your reporting right from your own computer, ushering in the era of self-service reporting.

During this practical training session, you'll learn how to create and design interactive reports using Power BI Desktop (Windows only). You'll also learn how to seamlessly share these reports with others.
