Introduction to Power BI

An Office 365 tutorial by Peter Kalmström

Office 365 logoPower BI is an analytics service that Microsoft added to Office 365 in 2015. With Power BI users can visualize data in a way that reminds of the Excel pivot table but is much more user friendly and intuitive.

In the demo below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer at kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, explains how to get started with Power BI.

Power BI is not visible among your apps until you connect it to Office 365, so the first thing Peter does is to open the Power BI site and select the online version. (There is also a desktop version.)

When Peter has signed in with his Office account and started Power BI, he shows how to:
  • Power BI iconImport a local file that contains the data that
    should be studied in Power BI.
  • Show the dataset.
  • Drag data to the dashboard.
  • Select how to group data.
  • Add a slicer.
  • Show data in a pie chart.
