Power BI is a complete business analytics service from Microsoft which allows you to turn data from different sources into a rich visual and interactive insights. As remote working continues to become the ‘new normal’, having reports readily available without manual tasks involving time and resources is becoming more essential. Here’s some of the top reasons why you should start using Power BI within your organisation.
One of the main benefits seen from Power BI is the increase in productivity it provides. Power BI allows complex reports to be generated quickly without code. Time consuming processes of extracting data from multiple sources becomes no longer necessary as having data collated all in one dashboard makes reporting effortless. Furthermore, the platform abolishes the error rate for creating these reports.
Power BI can connect to nearly any data source, meaning that it’s a platform that can be implemented into every business function within your organisation. With multiple sources of data available to select from, with just few clicks you can start to visualise data using the Power BI dashboard.
Power BI allows you to extract data sources which are relevant to you and your business function. Furthermore, you can select different levels of security, meaning that you can make confidential data only available to those who fall within the senior management category, whilst more generic data could be provided to those of lower seniority levels.
Power BI allows you to share and publish reports with anyone or everyone securely. Therefore, if data is rapidly changing, teams can efficiently and effectively adapt to business changes.
As well as an online based SaaS service called the Power BI service, Power BI is available on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, making data accessible wherever you are and whenever you need it.
