What is Power BI
Microsoft Power BI is a highly popular data visualisation tool created by Microsoft. The tool is used to empower businesses, offering a new way for users at all levels to be self-sufficient and self-serving. Power BI puts forward a new opportunity for your team to create reports and dashboards suited to your business, and effortlessly share discovered insights with the rest of the organisation, enabling a near-live, 360-degree view of your whole business with a single, stunning interactive dashboard.
Why Choose Microsoft Power BI?
This latest data visualisation and business intelligence (BI) tool from Microsoft allows users to develop and share stunning interactive dashboards, bringing data to life in what is considered a very data-driven world. Furthermore, users are able to create reports using a simple, yet sophisticated, charting and visualisation gallery, and securely share these reports and dashboards with other users, whether they’re a part of your organisation or not.
Microsoft Power BI is among the most robust of business intelligence tools readily available to businesses for data modelling purposes, turning what would otherwise be a series of unstructured numbers and charts into an enthralling visual representation of your organisation.
The Power BI analytics tool allows data to be viewed on a range of devices, including the Power BI Desktop application, a range of mobile applications that are iOS and Android compatible, avoiding limitation to the user as to where and how they can view their dashboards and reports. As a user, being able to effectively use Power BI and DAX will grant you the power to create and offer true value for a business.
