Power BI transforms data into value

It is important that you know exactly what is happening inside your company. You can do that by looking at the figures for instance. But it might be hard to find out what the development of sales over a longer period is or to see if the productivity of your employees has been stable over the past few months.

You want to see how something develops. Microsoft’s front-end analytics tooling helps by providing interactive dashboards that keep you up to date on a daily basis. You immediately see what needs to be done to continue an upward trend. Take adequate action. In the case of the creditor balance for example.

From data to insights in three stages

With Power BI you can easily visualize data from different data sources and get value out of it. As long as the data is accessible, we can make visualizations of it. You can merge data from different systems into a single data source or link it directly to a specific tool in which you want to gain insight.

Create rich interactive reports with Power BI Desktop and view your data in the native mobile app. It is easy, quick and cost-effective!

How does PowerBI relate to Excel?

With the arrival of Power BI, we will not massively say goodbye to Microsoft Excel. There are however some changes that are so great about this tool that they are important to mention. For instance the add-ins in Excel. In Power BI you don’t have to use them anymore. It is intended that it will act as a self-service analytics hub, and thus will be the central location used to view and analyze data.

Why do you choose for Power BI?

There are several front-end analytics solutions available, but not one so close to the basis of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, AX or Dynamics 365 Operations and Financials. Microsoft’s front-end analytics solution is therefore unique and very powerful.

In addition, the price is favorable. Comparable solutions are a lot more expensive. The threshold to work with BI is therefore low. The advantage is that a much larger number of companies can experience the benefits of BI. Namely, getting more value out of data. In this way, more and more companies take the step of becoming a data-driven company.

Why users adopt Power BI easily

Like Excel, it is a self-service Business Intelligence solution.The similarities between Excel and Power BI are fairly large. Although the user experience is very different.

In addition, it is easy to get started with the tool. The threshold is very low. That’s because there are a lot of standard connections. So you can very simply import data from multiple applications and make reports.

The power of Business Intelligence is that you convert data into action-oriented insight. The tool has been expanded in May 2017 with Power BI Apps that allow you to create specific, demand-driven dashboards that can be published and managed within a large group. When there is a change, it is implemented and placed back inside for all users.

In addition to Apps, the Quick Measures feature has been available since the beginning of 2017. It contains a number of standard calculations that you can use at the push of a button. DAX formulas without much effort. The advantage of this feature is that it makes calculations such as quarter-to-date simple.
