The different Wise Owl courses for Power BI explained
To say the least, it's confusing that Microsoft have two separate tools that do similar things and have similar names!
|Excel Power BI Tools||These comprise PowerPivot (used for importing data from a variety of data sources, and linking the resulting tables together to create a data model); Power Query (allowing you to manipulate data before loading it); Power View (a tool for creating pretty reports within a workbook); and Power Map (allowing you to create interactive maps, when it doesn't crash).|
|Power BI Desktop||This standalone application runs independently of Excel. It has less emphasis on generating pivot tables, and more on creating beautiful dashboards supporting drill-down (and publishable online).|
