Data Manipulation with R and Visualization with Power Bi Course

Introduction

It has been said that 80% of data analysis is spent on the process of cleaning and preparing the data. In this course we introduce some relatively-new additions to the R programming language; dplyr and ggplot2. In combination these provide a powerful toolkit to make the process of manipulating and visualizing data easy and intuitive.

Further Microsoft Power BI is a business intelligence technology from Microsoft that gathers and processes your data, analyzes and provides data driven insights that enables managers, business analysts and key decision makers to make informed decisions real time. It allows one to ask questions and get answers about their data. Users of Power BI are able to create interactive dashboards and insights by self-interacting with the technology.
