Leveraging Power Query to Get & Transform Your Task Flow
Power Query, also known as “Get & Transform”, is an amazing piece of ETL technology built into Excel 2016 and Power BI Desktop, and is available as a free add-in for Excel 2013 and 2010. It allows you to Extract data from a vast array of sources, Transform it more quickly and easily than you ever thought possible, and then Load it directly into a table or your data model.
The sad reality is that not all data is stored in nicely curated databases, and even when it is, the data analyst often doesn’t have access. Instead, we must piece together data provided in text files, Excel files, web pages, and even the body of emails to build the business intelligence solutions we need.
Until now this has been a painful, repetitive process with a great deal of cut and paste effort to clean, filter, and format data before it can even be used, and updates have been tedious and error prone. That ends right now!
If you need to learn one new tool today, Power Query is it.
With Power Query Academy, you’ll learn how to clean, reshape, and combine your data with ease, no matter where it comes from. Converting ASCII files into tables, combining multiple text files in one shot, and even unpivoting data is not only simple, but an investment in the future. You will save yourself hours of time gathering and preparing your data, and instead refresh your dashboard or report with a single click the next time you need it!
Power Query will change the way you "Get & Transform" data forever, and the skills you learn here are transferable between both Excel and Power BI.
Power Query Academy grew out of our popular live, online Power Query workshops. Due to the success of the workshops, demand grew for a video option catering to those who could not join us live for two days of training.
Power Query Academy will introduce you to the magic of Power Query and transform the way you work with data forever. What you learn here will save you hours of time that you can then use to explore your data, gain powerful insights, and make better decisions.
Ken Puls and Miguel Escobar, both top Power Query experts, will guide you as you learn to master this powerful tool, walking you through how to extract, transform, and load data in Microsoft Excel and Power BI Desktop.
