Microsoft Power BI

Microsoft Power BI

Most managers in mid-size or larger organizations know what it’s like to get overwhelmed with reports from multiple data stores, such as sales data, financial reports and inventory reports. It’s hard to make business decisions if you don’t have the full picture. Microsoft Power BI enables all your managers and key stakeholders to collect, analyze, and publish data coming from all over the organization. You don’t have to change the way your databases operate to enable these capabilities. Existing analytics platforms and tools can be extended, instead of being replaced, by full-featured dashboards and reports. Power BI addresses 3 common business intelligence challenges your organization may face:

  • Getting an end-to-end view off what is happening across departments
  • Collecting data from disparate geographical locations
  • Managing multiple data sources with different reporting capabilities
  • Getting more frequent updates data that changes quickly

Making the right data available to the right users at the right time means your employees can make smarter business decisions and stay ahead of the competition.

Keeping mobile managers informed on the go

Mobile business users need the latest operational data at their fingertips, no matter where they are or what device they’re using. Because PowerBI is accessible from any device traveling managers don’t need to stay in the dark. All PowerBI reports are available through an online portal that can be updated continuously. Now a business trip doesn’t mean there’s a risk of serious problems back at the office. If problems are afoot, managers will know about it wherever they are.

Secured access means control over your most sensitive information

Different roles have different needs and access levels, so a one-size-fits all solution doesn’t work. With PowerBI you can assign each user access to only the reports and data they are approved to view. You don’t need to worry about paper reports being picked up at the printer. Or lower-level employees walking off with management reports. With PowerBI you can adjust permissions for each user as you see fit, and make changes in real time. If a manager leaves the company it’s easy to turn off their access in an instant.

No need to fear “big data”

No other area in IT is growing as fast as big data and analytics. Data at the typical enterprise is doubling every 30 months. 90% of all stored data worldwide has been created in just the last two years. Accessing, understanding and collaborating on information has never more critical to the business. From manufacturing line managers to sales executives, accessing dashboards and reports is all part of a day’s work. Of all the investments you could make this year in technology solutions, wrangling and analyzing your data in real time should be at the top of the list. If not now, then when?
