    I am just wondering if anybody could recommend and training sites for working with Microsoft BI.

    I am starting an internship in two weeks using this, so i was hoping to try learn the basics before i start.

    I'm not an expert on Microsoft products but do you mean Microsoft Power BI? They seem to have a range of products related to the area of business intelligence. Will you be working with a cloud based solution or?

    I guess you could try the MSDN developer site for Microsoft and they also have a which may have something on it. Otherwise google seems to throw up a lot of results just searching for Microsoft BI.

    Also are you familiar with the Business domain where Microsoft BI will used? If not I would suggest brushing up on this as well.

    To be honest i am not sure what exactly they are using. I used Tableau for a small period in a previous job so they like the fact i used a business intelligence program before.

    I asked them what they used at the interview and they just told me Microsoft Business Intelligence and that's all i know. It is an internship so i presume i will be trained up on it anyway, i just wanted to have some basic understanding the first day.

    I downloaded Microsoft Power BI and i am just taking notes from some of their introduction videos.

    I think my best thing to do is play around with this and do some training videos for the next few days and hopefully this is what i will be using.

    I think you're on the right track so, and it's good you have some experience with tableau. Maybe brush up on SQL as well if needed.
