This is the 'Power' in Microsoft's Power BI! Before we dig deeper, what is Microsoft's Power BI?
Sample Power BI dashboard to explore and share data visualizations and insights
Microsoft Power BI, or “business intelligence,” is an impactful cloud-based tool that transforms a company’s data into rich visuals for its employees to collect and organize so they can focus on what matters to them: getting access to the right information, spotting important trends, and reaching important milestones.
One way to look at Power BI is Microsoft Excel on steroids. Once the raw data is loaded into Power BI, you can tailor these dashboards to highlight only the relevant information that matters to each individual or department. You can also interpret your data with compelling company insights. More importantly, it allows you to work smarter by eliminating wasted hours on spreadsheets to tackle that next big project.
If you're an Office 365 user, it's a no-brainer to enable and utilize Power BI to analyze data with greater optimization and efficiency. This allows you to take that raw data and quickly turn it into insights & intelligence. Allowing you to make usable, actionable data available throughout an organization, enable opportunities for new services and gain vital insights from fragmented and under-analyzed data.
