Blue Novation is based on the world-renowned BT Adastral Park Campus in Suffolk which has been at the centre of research and innovation for the past 40 years. We provide innovative solutions for businesses in the areas of software systems development, business intelligence, and staff development by utilising Microsoft software platforms. We have built up long-term, ongoing relationships with both local and national clients over many years which we firmly believe is the key to our continued success.
Formerly known as Desktop Training & Development, the change of name to Blue Novation in 2015 was a reflection of the move away from desktop to mobile devices and the increasing trend of cloud-based solutions. The word “Blue” is linked to the Microsoft Azure platform that we utilise and the word “Novation” derives from the Latin word “novatus” which is to make new, refresh, change. Blue Novation better reflects what our business is associated with today!

In the basic introduction to Power BI we look at the various data sources that can be used and in particular how to use data in Excel files. This course walks you through some simple scenarios of importing and preparing data, then creating visualisations and filters in order to produce a Power BI report.
Excel’s Pivot Tables enable you to quickly create concise reports from large data sets, spot trends by consolidating information and display results for multiple variable questions ‐ plus you can easily create Pivot Charts to visually represent your data. Stop writing complicated formulas, creating multiple worksheets, and using Sort and Filter commands ‐ and make Pivot Tables do the work for you!
If you’ve ever thought, “there must be a better, faster way” to handle repetitive tasks in Excel, then join our Recording Excel Macros workshop. Excel Macros are one of the most powerful, yet least understood and most underused tools, in Excel. This hands‐on session will show you how to start increasing your efficiency with Microsoft’s number one spreadsheet program.
