Data as a form of currency is an analogy that's been around since the early 2000s. However, data itself is worthless. The real value is in the insights you gain from it; this is where data analysis comes in. Data modeling is a crucial part of data analysis, helping turn raw data into accurate insights and meaningful reports. Use this course to learn how to design and optimize data models through Power BI Desktop. Examine the star and snowflake schemas. Learn about the DAX formula language. Then, conduct a range of tasks, including combining tables, defining calculated columns, creating measures, and counting values. Upon course completion, you'll know how to use data modeling to transform raw data into powerful visuals and reports. You'll also be further prepared for the DA-100: Analyzing Data with Microsoft Power BI certification exam.
