Power BI: any data, anyway, anywhere
December 2, 2017
Cloud based business analytics service, Power BI, transforms your data into rich visuals to be collected and organised, allowing you to focus on what matters most. The software allows the user to develop insights about an organisation’s client base, business processes, people, products and services to then drive achievement of objectives, long-term sustainability and competitive advantage.
Business Intelligence (BI) allows users to stay in the know, spot trends as they happen, and push your business further. With a central dashboard feature, users are able to log in and view data from your business and other third party add-ons, such as Google Analytics.
Initially launched in July 2013 as part of Office-365, the newest version of Microsoft’s Power BI has had some impressive upgrades. Microsoft released Power BI as a beta earlier this year, and the new service is now generally available.
Microsoft built its Power BI around three essential components: datasets, reports, and dashboards. Power BI can draw content from a firm’s data, for instance, leveraging connections to multiple sources such as Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Azure SQL Database, SQL Server Analysis Services and more.
Power BI works with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Operations (Microsoft Dynamics AX) or Microsoft Dynamics 365 Financials (Microsoft Dynamics NAV) allowing you to visualise your data in new ways and stay connected from any device.
