Get Real Insights From Your Data.
Power BI is a robust reporting tool built to provide valuable insights using data gathered from any system you use. With Power BI, reporting becomes simple. Just drag-and-drop live data to create powerful reports and discover trends in financials, customer service, marketing, sales and more. Ask Questions in Power BI using natural language and find answers quickly. Build out visualizations and turn them into beautiful, interactive dashboards based on categories. Make dynamic reports and dashboards that provide the most crucial information to relevant employees at a glance. With the flexibility of Power BI, the reporting possibilities are endless. Even integrate Power BI with solutions like Business Central, Dynamics GP, Office 365, Salesforce, Adobe, Google Analytics, QuickBooks, or many other data sources.
Integrate & Capture
Power BI enables users to retrieve data from any source through certified and custom-built connectors. It also comes loaded with built-in options such as QuickBooks, SharePoint, Azure, and more. These ‘certified’ connectors are built, maintained, and supported by the developer and are evaluated by and distributed through Microsoft. If you need to connect to a source that isn’t available out-of-box, there are hundreds of custom connectors available for web services, databases, and even private sets of data with more being built every day.
Prepare & Design
Data preparation has been reported to take up anywhere between 60-80% of the data analysis process due to necessary cleaning of duplicate and incomplete records. Power BI tackles this issue with Power Queries to build dataflows that allow users to shape their data as it's retrieved. Once data is in the system, users can build a wide range of visual models or even import custom visualizations from Microsoft AppSource.
Analyze & Act
Data analysis is a long process that can sometimes feel draining, especially if no real actionable insights are gathered. Data reports offer the most value when exposed to lots of eyes. That’s why Power BI makes it easy to share what you build with your team using content packs that round up all of your work into one item. The finishing touches to models are made through paginated reports, which let users modify what they make with additions like headers, footers, logos, and other customization options so that reports are beautiful and easy to read.
