Benefits of Power BI

For a successful company, you need to base your decision-making on real company data. With Power BI, the ability to make quick, insight-based decisions increases. Microsoft currently dominates the Business Intelligence market due to its ease of use, price, and integration with other Microsoft products. 

What is Microsoft Power BI?

Power BI is Microsoft's Business Intelligence solution that offers an analytics service, providing business insights that enable rapid and sustained decisions. 

It is a cross-platform tool, comprising a collection of software services, applications, and connectors that work together to transform unrelated data sources into coherent, visually engaging, and interactive information.

In practice, Power BI is able to convert raw data into dashboards, so that data can be analyzed more efficiently, trends and patterns can be detected, and insights can be gained to improve business decision-making.
