This 5 day instructor-led training class is presented by Microsoft training partners to their end customers. Training partners in North America and the UK hire proven AMS Subject Matter Expert Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCT’s) to teach on-site and on-line classes.
In this class we utilize built in tools and do not write a single line of code! No Code visualization means using the data structures that exist already to get the job done.
The target audience of this class is Business Analysts, Report Designers, Team Leads, SharePoint Administrators, Business Intelligence Developers and Project Managers that will be tasked with the implementation, support, management or training needed to rapidly empower the users to take advantage of the exploding world of Data V.
This class will help students learn how to rapidly prototype reports on their own. Students can move from textual reports to graphical reporting, Six Sigma type reports using Visio Data Driven objects. Students will be able to assist their organizations with the implementation of analysis based on automatically updating data and with implementing a “Single Source of The Truth” structure. Students will understand the effectiveness of the reports, dashboards and the tools that are available to determine which is the target audience for those tools as well as implement actionable dashboards to allow line managers to rapidly take action.
