29.02.2024: HMA ACADEMY: YOUR DATA JOURNEY BEGINS!

REVIEW OF THE FIRST TRAINING: DATA VISUALIZATION WITH POWER BI


Susanne Ullrich on 23.02.2024


We make you fit for your data! It was with this vision that we launched our exclusive HMA Academy training program a few months ago. Since then, a lot of passion, expertise and hard work have gone into developing our detailed training program.

Now it’s time to proudly reap the first rewards: Last month, we opened our new training center at beautiful Schliersee, just an hour away from Munich. We have already successfully held the first training course on “Data visualization with Power BI” there. This was an internal trial training course, as we have very high quality standards and at the same time attach great importance to the further training of our employees.

REVIEW OF THE TRAINING “DATAVIZ WITH POWER BI”

Our initial workshop “Professional data visualization with Power BI” recently took place at our training center in Schliersee under the direction of our experienced trainer Tobias Lanzl. The participants were given a good insight into the world of the data visualization tool Power BI and learned how to visualize data effectively.

The training focused on the following content:

  • Introduction to Power BI and exploration of the user interface
  • Introduction to loading and preparing data
  • Overview of different visualization types and their advantages and disadvantages
  • Visualizations in Power BI
  • Introduction to Data Analytics Expressions (DAX)

Great emphasis was placed on a balanced mix of theory and practice. Various exercises on what was learned directly in the tool loosened up the training and ensured that what was learned could be applied immediately. At the end of the first training day, all participants were able to perform calculations independently using a sample data set and visualize data in their Power BI dashboard based on various questions. This resulted in a finished dashboard that was calculated and created using a .csv file with raw data.

As a small insight, we would like to show you a slide of the different types of data visualizations that were discussed during the training:

The feedback on the Power BI training was consistently positive: the participants were enthusiastic about the content and teaching methods and gained valuable insights, as can be seen from an excerpt of anonymous feedback:

“I particularly liked the practical exercises, as you learn in a ‘learning by doing’ style. The overview of the different types of diagrams was also very interesting.”

“The exercises in the tool were very valuable. The tasks were very well thought out and not too easy. I thought that was very good. You dealt with questions in a very detailed and understandable way and used examples so that the answer to the question became tangible.”

“You have a talent for getting people excited about Power BI. I took away a lot and really want to learn more!”
