Business Central Reporting with Power BI: Fundamental & Advanced Training Courses

February 9, 2021 Justin Andl

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is capable of providing you with an extraordinary amount of data for your business – but that data is only useful if it is in the format that you understand and is useful for making business decisions. Microsoft Power BI integrates seamlessly with Business Central for consolidated business intelligence and insight.

Western Computer’s Power BI Training courses are the fastest way to ensure your employees know how to maximize the value of your data and your technology investments.


Transform Data into Opportunity with Power BI

Whether your users are total beginners or already have some experience using Power BI, the full capabilities of this business analytics tool go far beyond basic business reports. That’s why Western Computer offers a hands-on Business Central Reporting with Power BI: Fundamentals course as well as Business Central Reporting with Power BI: Advanced.

Both courses are private, online training courses for 1-5 users with biweekly 90-minute sessions to give users time to consume and apply the skills they’re learning.
