What do we mean by no code? It is a matter of perspective. In today’s world the successful software vendor needs to develop software that is easily customizable by casual users. In the realm of business intelligence that means offering a variety of tools to different types of users that, depending on their experience, they can utilize to rapidly create the visualization of data that suits their needs. Microsoft has produced a great array of such tools that target different users. These tools are various Wizards, Dialog Boxes, Forms, Web Pages Designers and so forth. In this course we utilize the built in tools and do not write a single line of code!

No Code visualization means using the data structures that exist already to get the job done.


The target audience of this course is for Business Analysts, Report Designers, Team Leads, SharePoint Administrators, Business Intelligence Developers and Project Managers that will be tasked with the implementation, support, management or training needed to rapidly empower the users to take advantage of the exploding world of Data V.
