Course Introduction

The demand for visual analytics in business processes, for quick and informed decision-making, is ever increasing. Microsoft Power Business Intelligence (Power BI), is one of the solution platforms for a robust dashboard development. The high-end features from Microsoft Power BI and DAX functions, which are “similar” to those offered in Microsoft Excel, have made the process of building dashboards easier. Visual Analytics is the science of analytical reasoning supported by interactive visual interfaces. Today, data is produced at an incredible rate and the ability to collect and store the data is increasing at a faster rate than the ability to analyse it. Visual Analytics can be seen as an integral approach combining visualization, human factors, and data analysis.
