Whether your corporation operates in the sphere of healthcare, finance, insurance, or another industry, you likely want to know as much as possible about your company’s inner workings. But not all IT departments have the budget to hire a team of data scientists to crunch numbers around the clock. And even companies that do have access to unlimited resources aren’t guaranteed to discover data buried deep inside their operations. To truly unearth invaluable insights hidden in your business, you need to put Power BI to work for you.
What is Power BI?
Developed by Microsoft, Power BI is a robust suite of business analytics tools that surfaces trends, patterns, and other data-based connections that may otherwise go unnoticed. Through personalized reports, customized dashboards, and interactive visualizations based on an organization’s unique data, Power BI grants users unparalleled visibility of their business analytics and sheds light on relationships that may never have been considered. The best part, however, is that Power BI does all of this without requiring a dedicated team of database administrators.
Power BI easily connects to hundreds of data sources and has the ability deliver insights across various tiers of your organization. The platform produces gorgeous reports that are easy to share across your organization and look stunning on any size device. Having that kind of information at the tip of your fingers can have a dramatic impact upon operations and can help your company stand out from the competition.
Is Power BI Right for You?
Not sure your business has an actual use-case for Power BI? Consider this scenario: Say you operate a modest financial firm experiencing a surge of success. If your technology hasn’t kept pace with your business’s growth, there are likely a lot of dots you’re not connecting and a lot of opportunities you’re missing out on. But once you take advantage of the advanced tools included with Power BI, you’ll have easy access to key bits of data your company’s chief officers would love to know about.
Furthermore, say your company’s C-level likes to see a certain series of reports each morning. You can use Power BI to automatically import a particular dataset and update your executives’ dashboards accordingly. From that point, the big bosses can make more well-informed decisions about what actions to take next. You can also incorporate additional elements into your dashboard such as cash on hand, works in progress, and new sales discovery meetings. The possibilities are virtually endless.
