Power BI – Do You Want It?

March, 2022


Short answer, YES you do. Power BI gives you the ability to consolidate and report on data from multiple sources to create interactive, visually effective dashboards and reports that provide decision-makers with clear and actionable insight. What makes this tool an obvious must-have, is its price tag – the service is often free from Microsoft; and with minimal investment, you can leverage the help of a solution partner, like KeelCo, to build customized dashboards and impressive reports guaranteed to exceed expectations.

Consider these core benefits of Power BI:

    1. You can interpret data with easy-to-digest visuals. Power BI gives you the power to not only pull relevant data from multiple sources but create visual reports that leverage your company’s KPIs and brand. The result is information that is gathered is translated in a way users understand and appreciate – and Power BI keeps you in the know with push notifications, personal data alerts, and mobile platform (including iOS) access.
    2. Turn insight into action by leveraging Excel. To make the best decisions possible, you need all stakeholders to have timely access to the relevant information. Power BI helps teams work together easily on the same data, collaborate on reports, and share insights across popular Microsoft Office applications. With unparalleled Excel integration, anyone familiar with Microsoft Office can easily connect Excel queries, data models, and reports to Power BI Dashboards to publish and share traditional spreadsheet data in new ways.
    3. It’s a tool all team members can use to create impactful reports. With Power BI, it’s possible for team members to connect all data sources with the scale to analyze, share, and promote insight across your organization while maintaining data consistency and security. In addition, users benefit from the latest advances in Microsoft AI helping them prepare data, build machine learning models, and find anomalies quickly from both structured and unstructured data.
    4. Interactive reports customized for your organization. Create stunning reports with interactive data visualizations – Power BI allows you to build displays with drag-and-drop selections from a library of hundreds of contemporary visuals. You can design and deploy custom report themes, formatting, and visuals using the open source framework provided by Microsoft.
