SESSION Details

Power BI Administration and Governance training class

Description
In this training session we will cover everything you need to know as a Power BI administrator or Power BI responsible. We will use theory and practice to learn concepts and apply them.
We will provision a Power BI environment; we will look at the main settings and figure out which of them are important and how they should be set according to best practices. We will then setup Power BI premium and look through the administration options when it comes to dedicated capacity. We will investigate the role of the Enterprise Gateway, set it up, configure it and talk about how to administer it. We will look at Power BI governance and see how you can set governance strategy, create processes and roles and lastly but not least how you can monitor your Power BI environment.

Who is this training for?
This training is aimed at Power BI Administrators, lead developers, governance responsible and other with interest in Power BI Administration and Governance and in the concepts and best practices of the subject.
There are no pre-requisites to join the course but ideally you have a basic understanding of Power BI. If you don´t you will be able to complete the course but some of the Administration concepts might not be as relatable.

How is the training delivered?
The training format is classroom training where theory and practice are interchanging. We will introduce topics and then do exercises to enforce the theory. If you are an administrator of a Power BI tenant, you can choose to do the exercises on your own tenant or choose to do them on our practice tenant.
