  • Course Data Analysis with Power BI : Content

    In the course Data Analysis with Power BI participants learn to combine data from various sources and to make data analyzes with interactive dashboards and BI reports. Power BI is a Data Visualization and Business Intelligence Tool (BI) and offers various connectors and services with which users can read data and create BI reports.

    Power BI Architecture

    The course Data Analysis with Power BI starts with an explanation of the architecture of Power BI with Power BI Desktop, Power BI Gateway and Power BI Services and how to create reports with Power BI.

    Power BI and Data

    Subsequently attention is paid to making connections with data sources such as plain text files, CSV files, SQL Databases, XML data, JSON data and Excel files. It is also discusses how data in the cloud and in online services can be accessed by Power BI.

    Power BI Components

    The various components that make up Power BI such as Dashboards, Tiles, Power Query, Power Pivot, Power View and Power Map are also treated in the course Data Analysis with Power BI. And the Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) with conditionals, data types and information functions, logical functions and table functions that Power BI has available are reviewed as well.

    Data Modeling

    Part of the program of the course Data Analysis with Power BI is also Data Modeling in Power BI with relationship detection, calculated columns and tables and DAX formulas and expressions. And attention is paid to the creation and configuration of Dashboards for displaying data.


    Next the various filters that Power BI has to offer are discussed such as Page Level Filters, Report Level Filters and Drill Through Filters and Queries and Slicers in Power BI are treated.

    Power BI REST API

    Finally the course Data Analysis with Power BI explains and demonstrates the Power BI REST API which provides service endpoints for embedding, administration and user resources.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
