60 Second Briefing: What is PowerBI?

Microsoft Office 365 Power BI
Nowadays, businesses come in all shapes and sizes making it difficult to keep up-to-date with all the data and stats needed to ensure everything is running as it should be. There are multiple apps and software for customer relationship management, analytics and social media etc. Because of this, it can be hard to connect the dots and get an ‘easy to understand’ report that collects all the information across the board and centralises it all in one place. This is when PowerBI can help you.

  Power BI is a cloud-based tool, available for Office 365 Enterprise E5, that allows anyone to connect hundreds of third-party business apps and view their own personal dashboard… anytime, anyplace, and it’s updated in real time.

Power BI consists of all your live business data in one place, producing interactive reports which can be customised to suit your business needs, bringing data to life in a visual way. This allows you to stay in control of your business, analysing various aspects and finding solutions to problems that you may not have seen before.

In summary – Power BI can do four things for you:

  1. Centralise your whole business on one dashboard.
  2. Create visually appealing, interactive reports.
  3. Get consistent analysis across your whole business.
  4. Easily embed BI and analytics in your app.
