Power BI is an intuitive, user-friendly tool that visualises data in an attractive way.
In order to monitor and improve the success of products and services in a targeted manner, companies need to process and analyse the data they collect with a high frequency. This is often done with Excel. A disadvantage of this is that the origin and reliability of the data is not always clear. Because employees manage important reports in local software, a decentralised network of available information is created.
To streamline your data, we use Microsoft’s Power BI Suite. With Power BI, you build reusable (big) data models that quickly answer the most important questions within your organisation. To do this, you can combine data from different sources and make advanced calculations. You also make the results of a model visible in an appealing way in dynamic, interactive reports.
In addition to data models and reports, the Power BI platform contains an important third layer: dashboards. The idea behind dashboards is that parts of reports can be bundled so that users have direct insight into the data that is most important to them.
With Power BI, as a company you get much more value from Microsoft Dynamics and the data stored in the CRM. For these systems, the data structure is primarily set up for the input and processing of data and not customised reports and dashboards. When retrieving large amounts of data, there is also the risk that the database becomes overloaded. That is why an extra step is needed to make large quantities of data from different data sources accessible for analysis purposes in a responsible manner.
Analyses with Power BI make things measurable. By enabling your organisation’s departments to answer questions themselves, the analytical power is increased.
