Microsoft Power BI is a data visualization tool that provides a greater depth of insight into your Dynamics 365 data. This powerful analytics solution empowers users to explore data and make better business decisions. Whether you want to evaluate marketing campaigns, CRM leads and opportunities, or financial records in Business Central - Power BI will allow your team to find and share the most meaningful insight and analysis.
Our recent webinar explored how organizations can leverage Power BI to:
1. Discover more value in data
Power BI works and integrates effortlessly with Excel, making it the perfect solution for accounting teams that are looking to extract insights from their data. Users can easily build out pivot tables and surface information from Excel right into Power BI. Unlike other analytics platforms, there is not a steep learning curve as users can work with the tools they know and love (Excel) to find data quickly and extract value. It’s simple to layer in powerful visualizations with Excel and Power BI to combine data and views.
2. Save time searching for data
Power BI contextualizes data searches by allowing users to enter natural language strings and even jargon (!) to search and find data. Keyword search empowers people within your organization to find the exact data they’re looking for and then Power BI clearly visualizes it for them. No filters or specific formatting is required – users can simply type in keywords, and it will bring in the right valuable information.
3. Share data and insights
There are infinite ways for users to collaborate and share information using Power BI. The platform is available across multiple collaboration tools such as SharePoint or Teams, empowering organizations to publish reports directly into whatever platform or site their team use. You can also connect data via the Power Platform using the Power BI service and model out history that’s stored in other databases such as Power Apps. Users can extend the use of Power BI for very specific types of reporting based on the applications they use and easily share it across multiple tools for a team view of the world.
