Power BI – Business Intelligence for Your Intelligent Business
Business Intelligence for some is an oxymoron. Perhaps you think so, too. Let the chuckles settle down and then think of it this way – do you have an intelligent business? If you were snickering before, you’re probably not now. Most of the business owners we speak to instinctually know the “health” of their business. The really good ones have a clear sense of direction, although the direction of choice is influenced by their instincts, which is nothing to belittle, but it’s not necessarily based on facts or measurable forecasts.
What if you did have an intelligent business? What if the next strategic move for your company was determined by performance based results of previous business activities? And, armed with this information, you could adequately forecast potential growth upon the tactical implementation of this new strategic move? Microsoft Power BI can help you do just that.
Microsoft Power BI is not for the faint of heart, nor is it ONLY for large businesses. The “power” behind Power BI is its ability to move traditional data analysis from the dark rooms of database administrators and programmers out to the desktops of everyday business analysts, CxOs, Directors, and Managers. Running an intelligent business is important for any size business. Microsoft Power BI makes this a reality through its familiar tools, low cost of entry, and the ability to quickly get actionable information into the hands of those that need it most.
Microsoft Power BI is both broad and deep in its capabilities. A newsletter will not adequately cover either aspect. We promise that you will hear more from us about this topic as it is near and dear to our hearts – and our business – as we suspect it is to yours, too. In addition, we have several Power BI initiatives underway and we will be sure to share our experiences with you.
