DATA IS THE ELECTRICITY THAT RUNS YOUR BUSINESS. Those companies that leverage data and make decision based off of that information can MORE THAN DOUBLE their success. Stay ahead of your competition and attend the Power BI DAX training.
What is DAX?DAX is a collection of functions, operators, and constants that can be used in a formula, or expression, to calculate and return one or more values. Stated more simply, DAX helps you create new information from data already in your model.
Why is DAX so important?It’s quite easy to create a new Power BI Desktop file and import some data into it. You can even create reports that show valuable insights without using any DAX formulas at all. But, what if you need to analyze growth percentage across product categories and for different date ranges? Or, you need to calculate year-over-year growth compared to market trends? DAX formulas provide this capability and many other important capabilities as well. Learning how to create effective DAX formulas will help you get the most out of your data. When you get the information you need, you can begin to solve real business problems that affect your bottom line. This is the power in Power BI, and DAX will help you get there.
