60 Second Briefing: What is PowerBI?
Introducing Power BI
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:
- Centralise your whole business on one dashboard.
- Create visually appealing, interactive reports.
- Get consistent analysis across your whole business.
- Easily embed BI and analytics in your app.
