Bringing Data to the centre of your Organisation
As processing power becomes ever cheaper, more organisations are applying business intelligence to make better decisions and improve forecasting.
The benefits of presenting data from multiple sources in easily digestible form are significant, particularly for less Excel or SQL-savvy team members.
Helping people interpret data using straightforward visualisation tools can make a huge difference and this is where Microsoft Power BI comes in.
What is Power BI?
Power BI is a data visualisation tool helping business users to leverage their data to make better decisions. It is truly democratising Business Intelligence.
For the data nerds among us, it’s the successor to 'Power BI for Office 365' and through Excel, encompasses Power Query, Power Pivot, and Power View. Because it was originally an add-on to other Microsoft products, Power BI has familiar and intuitive UI and it won’t be long before you are creating dashboards like a pro.
Power BI can work across different sources of information such as event attendance lists, sales reports, CRM or website stats to turn this:
How do I use Power BI?
Data made beautiful
A Dashboard is a collection of reports that provides an overview of one aspect of your business: sales, logistics, customer management or manufacturing output. Each report is called a Tile and represents one data set.
Dashboards aren’t just pretty pictures; they are interactive and customisable and the tiles update as the underlying data changes.
There is no need to reinvent the wheel. Microsoft provide a range of template visualisation formats. If you get bored with those, there are also free custom visualisations in the Office Store, including but not limited to ͞aquarium, dot plot, pulse chart and bubble chart. Fun!
Note Dashboards are not available in Power BI Desktop, neither can they be created on mobile devices but they can be viewed and shared on mobile.
