In February 2019, Microsoft was named as the leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence not for the first time, but for the 12th year in a row, and for the past five years, Microsoft’s preeminence in analytics and business intelligence is because of Microsoft Power BI. Power BI is a set of powerful tools designed to be accessible to business end users, tools that let you create visualizations that you can manipulate, publish, and share with your colleagues. Learning Power BI gives you an edge over people who are trying to analyze data using tools that are harder to use, less powerful, and less collaborative.
