Microsoft's own Guy in a Cube has been providing tips and tricks for Power BI and Business Intelligence on his YouTube channel since 2014. Every Thursday we highlight a different helpful video from his collection.

This week's Tech Tip Thursday is for the DBAs! Our own Guy in a Cube talks about how to create visualizations with Power BI, even if you don’t know anything about data modeling or business intelligence. He reviews a few simple steps from the perspective of an SQL user, including importing your data, adjusting data types and calculations, dragging fields onto the canvas to create visualizations, and finally publishing and sharing your work through the Power BI service.
