Are you a Power BI user who wants to gain hands-on experience with Cognite Data Fusion? Are you curious to learn how to handle a large set of CDF data in Power BI?

The Cognite Power BI connector lets you use a CDF project as a data source in Power BI Desktop to query, transform and visualize data, share insights across your organization, or embed dashboards in your app or website. When working with the Cognite Power BI connector, it is important to know how to refresh the data and apply best practices to deliver accurate results. The newest course from Cognite Academy introduces you to implementing incremental refresh - one of the best practices to get the most out of the Cognite Power BI connector. Our instructors first explain when to use incremental refresh, then show you how to set it up in four steps. In this course, the training data comes from the Open Industrial Data (OID) project, a live stream of industrial data from the Valhall oil platform.

After completing this course, you’ll be able to:

  • Explain the importance of incremental refresh

  • Identify the steps in configuring incremental refresh

  • Set up incremental refresh

This course is a continuation of previous CDF & Power BI courses where you learn how to connect Power BI to a CDF project and solve a simple use case. The courses are also part of the Data Scientist Basics learning path
