VOX ISM, Microsoft Triple Gold Partner, once again holds a full-house, sold-out training workshop featuring Microsoft’s latest and hottest technology – Microsoft Power BI last October 30, 2019, at Microsoft Canada HQ in Mississauga.

Power BI is a business analytics solution that lets you visualize your data and share insights across your organization or embed them in your app or website. Power BI enables you to connect to hundreds of data sources and bring your data to life with live dashboards and reports. Any time, Anywhere, Anyway.

With Power BI, you can:

  • Connect to your data, wherever it is
  • Prep and model your data with ease
  • Provide advanced analytics with the familiarity of Excel
  • Create rich, interactive reports with visual analytics at your fingertips – customized for your business
  • Share reports with others on any device, anywhere.

The objective of the seminar is to introduce and train users to Power BI technology by learning how to create their first-ever Power BI Dashboard in as little as four hours.

In the seminar is VOX ISM Power BI and Analytics Team headed by Jim Heaton, President, Emma Arkadyev (Product Manager), and Patricia Cowman (Report Writing and Business Intelligence). Also, present in training – Mike Fontaine (Manufacturing and Business Process Consultant) and Trevor Reid (Senior Technology Consultant and Cyber-security expert).

The training workshop was a great success not only for the VOX ISM Team but for the attendees as well. Aside from learning something new, attendees also had a chance to express their hidden Power BI skills by joining a contest after the training workshop. The VOX ISM Power BI team walked around the room and hand-selected the three best looking Power BI dashboards. Each winner received a free bottle of wine as a prize. There was also much good feedback from the attendees mostly saying how great Power BI technology is and how they will be using it.
