Every organization captures data from multiple sources. However, extracting actionable insights from complex data easily and quickly, and making it available to everyone, is the real challenge. Data driven organizations capitalize on self-service business intelligence tools such as Power BI that help them to make sense of their data and drive smarter business decisions.
Power BI is a cloud-based suite of interactive business analytics tools from Microsoft that enables businesses to analyze, visualize, publish and share insights. It is worth noting that Microsoft has been recognized as a leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms.
With Power BI, organizations can get a 360-degree view of their businesses with live real-time dashboards, create interactive reports with Power BI Desktop and access information on the go with Power BI Mobile applications. Power BI has something for everyone in the organization, for analysts who can connect to hundreds of sources and create rich, meaningful reports, for business users who can view real-time dashboards from anywhere, any device and drill into details or for IT personnel who can ensure compliance and data security while giving people access to insights they need. What gives Power BI the edge?
With built-in connectors, Power BI can be connected to hundreds of data sources from Microsoft, Salesforce and other vendors. The data can be on-premise or on cloud.
Power BI’s deep integration with other Microsoft products such as Dynamics 365, Excel, Office 365 including SharePoint, Microsoft Flows and Powerpoint, makes it easy to use and shortens the learning curve.
Power BI Q&A integrated with Cortana allows users to ask questions about their data using natural language and get their answers in the form of reports or visuals created automatically. So, a non-technical user does not have to learn complex query languages.
: Developers can easily add custom visuals into Power BI and visualize dashboards and reports in their own way.
Developers can embed Power BI content into a web app or other software products using Power APIs.
Users can get a taste of Power BI by starting free with Power BI Desktop and as data storage, analysis and reporting needs grow over time, organizations can purchase the capacity that’s needed – by licensing users individually or going for Power BI Premium.
