Our data sources are scattered and dynamic. To connect, collect and clean the data is a time consuming and tedious task. Power Query is a data connection technology that enables you to discover, connect, combine, and refine data sources.
Power Query is a data transformation tool that helps to connect almost any data source and transform data using user-friendly features with just one click and no coding. You import and clean millions of records and load them to data model for data analysis and reporting.
Business users spend up to 80 percent of their time on data preparation, which delays the work of analysis and decision-making. Several challenges contribute to this situation, and Power Query helps address many of them.
The Power Query Editor is the primary data preparation experience, where you can connect to a wide range of data sources and apply hundreds of different data transformations by previewing data and selecting transformations from the UI. These data transformation capabilities are common across all data sources, whatever the underlying data source limitations.
When you create a new transformation step by interacting with the components of the Power Query interface, Power Query automatically creates the M code required to do the transformation so you don’t need to write any code.
