Last year was a remarkable one for the Power BI community. We launched Microsoft Fabric, an end-to-end analytics platform that brings together data preparation, data warehousing, data engineering, data science, real-time analytics, and business intelligence in one unified SaaS foundation with one copy of data stored in OneLake. We also launched Power BI Copilot, making it easier to find insights and build reports using natural language. And our community of over 2 million members continued to engage on our forums, post ideas, join user groups, helping one another in their data journeys.
New Fabric Analytics Engineer Associate certification
Our community is looking to swiftly ramp up on Fabric. We heard loud and clear from you that certifications from Microsoft would help you and your teams upskill to Fabric and give you the training needed to deploy Fabric in your organizations. I’m excited to announce the beta availability of Exam DP-600: Implementing Analytics Solutions with Microsoft Fabric, which helps you earn the Microsoft Certified: Fabric Analytics Engineer Associate certification.
Fabric Analytics Engineers transform data into reusable analytics assets, including semantic models, reports, dataflows, data pipelines, notebooks, lakehouses, and data warehouses. Fabric is built on the Power BI experience you are familiar with, making your transition to Analytics Engineering easier and quicker. This certification is ideal for Power BI Data Analysts looking to upskill to data engineering tasks.
