Power BI for Oil & Gas

Power BI is Microsoft’s answer to tools like Spotfire and Tableau, and it’s a good fit for many companies.  Between the smooth transition for Excel users, cost-effective pricing, and tight integration with things like SQL Server, Azure, and Power Pivot, Power BI offers top-tier (per Gartner) business intelligence.

Intro Classes

VI has two versions of Intro to Power BI, using real O&G datasets to speed up learning and adoption.  Our Intro to Power BI classes are designed for current Excel or Spotfire users that are new to Power BI (generally <40 hrs hands-on experience).  They teach the same basic concepts, but use different datasets to make them as relevant as possible to attendees.

  • Intro to Power BI for Oil & Gas Corporate Functions uses accounting transactions and land/lease data 
  • Intro to Power BI for Oil & Gas Technical Functions uses daily production/pressure data
Intermediate Classes

Our Intermediate Power BI classes focus on the skills needed for enterprise reporting and analytics, using common O&G use cases for exercises. There are four 90-minute modules that we offer in both single day and multi-day formats.  These are designed for people that already have basic skills in Power BI such as connecting to datasets, creating visualizations, and simple DAX formulas.

  • Deeper Dive on DAX
  • Putting the Power in Power Query
  • Mapping and Geospatial Analysis
  • Buttons, Bookmarks, and Actions
