  • Enrich your Power BI dashboards using external APIs and machine learning models
  • Create any visualization, as complex as you want, using Python and R scripts

Book Description

The latest edition of this book delves deeper into advanced analytics, focusing on enhancing Python and R proficiency within Power BI. New chapters cover optimizing Python and R settings, utilizing Intel's Math Kernel Library (MKL) for performance boosts, and addressing integration challenges. Techniques for managing large datasets beyond laptop RAM, employing parquet data format, and advanced fuzzy matching algorithms are explored. Additionally, it discusses leveraging SQL Server External Languages to overcome traditional Python and R limitations in Power BI. It also helps in crafting sophisticated visualizations using the grammar of graphics in both R and Python.

This PowerBI book will help you master data validation with regular expressions, import data from diverse sources, and apply advanced algorithms for transformation. Next, you'll learn to Safeguard personal data in Power BI with techniques like pseudonymization, anonymization, and data masking. You'll also get to grips with the key statistical features of data sets by plotting multiple visual graphs in the process of building a machine-learning model. The book will guide you to Utilize external APIs for enrichment, enhancing I/O performance, and leveraging Python and R for analysis.

You'll also be able to reinforce learning with questions at the end of each chapter.

What you will learn

  • Configure optimal integration of Python and R with Power BI
  • Perform complex data manipulations not possible by default in Power BI
