Video: Learn how to use Power BI in less than 20 minutes

Power BI is like the Swiss Army knife of business intelligence.

Need to create an amazing-looking 3D display of your geographic data? Use Power BI’s Power Map feature. Want to mash up your company’s data with external data sets? Fire up Power BI’s Power Query tool. I’m not sure what the Excel equivalent of those tiny scissors that look silly but are actually super useful would be, but I’m pretty sure it’s in there.

No gross reusable toothpicks, though.

Watch the latest video in the Office Blog’s Garage Series for an easy-to-understand guide to getting started with Power BI.
