She had worked extensively in Automation consulting and solution Design for Accenture Technology’s Utilities and Energy Client.

The session was fruitful for the students and after attending the session students found it easier to present their excel data in a more visual and analytical form. It is a very powerful and useful tool which helps in understanding how to create dashboards and results in a report form. Also, Microsoft Power BI is used to find insights within an organization’s data.

Power BI can help to connect discrete data sets, transform and clean the data into a data model and create charts or graphs to provide visuals of the data. All of this can be shared with other Power BI users within the organization.

Prof. Devyani guided students step by step and asked them to perform side by side, clearing doubts immediately. She told students about various features, such as a stacked chart, matrix, slicer, decomposition tree, clustered chart and also how to apply formulas like date value etc.
