Microsoft has created an alternative environment for creating user-interactive dashboards without Excel. The FREE Power BI Desktop application allows business professionals to create stunning dashboards using quick and easy drag-and-drop processes, similar to Power View, but without the need to invest in Excel 2013/2016. If you have an older version of Office, are using a Mac, or have large data sets that require the additional memory space of a 64-bit application, Power BI Desktop is for you.

Don't miss this opportunity to see this amazing new reporting tool in action.
