Wat is Microsoft Power BI?
Microsoft's Power BI is not so much a programming language, but has more to do with a collection of software services, apps and connectors. These various components work together to transform unrelated data into coherent, visually immersive and interactive insights. Data can be an Excel spreadsheet or a collection of hybrid data in the cloud and/or on premises. With Power BI it is easy to connect data, visualize it and discover what is important. A Power BI superhero can effortlessly integrate all your data into Power BI and generate valuable insights. Power BI also has a number of APIs that can be used to push new data to datasets, or to build dashboards and reports into your own custom applications or programs.
