Power BI was launched in 2016 and quickly became the leading business analysis tool. Power BI gives life to numbers, helps managers better understand data through charts, and brings organizations together with its collaborative sharing features. However, it takes some work to use Power BI competently, so there are many blogs out there created to educate people on using the tool effectively. As a Power BI user myself, here are the top five blogs I use and would recommend.
Run by David Eldersveld, a Microsoft MVP, DataVeld provides information about Power BI ranging from basic to advanced. The topics are diverse – you can read about data visualization, Maps, and Power Query, to name a few – and there are many useful tutorials. Moreover, this site also has great Power BI samples for your reference.
