Knowledge transfer

Making effective decisions based on business analysis requires having competencies covering the entire process of transforming data into information, from databases, through data models, reporting layer, manager cockpits, up to advanced analyses and their operationalisation. We can help you bring the right expertise in these areas into your organisation.

Power BI Developer

It is an essential function within an organisation, as the person is responsible for creating reports and manager cockpits,

as well as creating a reporting layer for information contained in databases. From the perspective of the user who creates reports, a key aspect will be the ability to properly illustrate a KPI, trend or relationship between data items using the available visualisations, metrics and other elements of the Power BI tool.

Other competency areas, such as database management, data warehouse construction and performing advanced analyses, can be supplied as the organisation’s business analytics develops.

Building of a Power BI Developer’s competencies should be conducted in a gradual, planned manner that guarantees the consolidation of knowledge of new tools and technologies. Due to the different levels of knowledge and experience of the participants, we start from basic training and perform reconnaissance while gradually increasing the complexity of the issues discussed and preparing new work standards with increasing knowledge of how the organisation is structured.
