    TIME:  9:00 am PDT / 12:00 pm EDT / 5:00 pm GMT

    PRESENTER:  Eric Shatterfield, New Horizons Instructor

    As the age of social media, Big Data, and the cloud continues to unfold, the various data sources that business users must weave together for reports is growing rapidly. Like many, you may find yourself having to tie data from Salesforce to Excel workbooks, CSVs to Access and SQL databases, or SurveyMonkey to data in Azure. This already-laborious process may only be further complicated by the fact that large portions of your data need to be trimmed, cleansed, wrangled, “macroed”, massaged, “VLOOKUPed”, and transformed before ever seeing the light of day.

    Thanks to Microsoft Power BI, you can finally start putting your data transformation woes to rest. With the help of the Power Query Editor, you can apply powerful cleansing and transforming actions with the click of a button and record every step in the process, all without ever having to write a line of code.

    Join us on August 19 for Part 2 in our Power BI webinar series in which we will explore just a few ways you can automate your ETL process with the Power Query Editor.
